Bismarck, ND – President-elect Obama has apparently chosen former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle to be the new Health and Human Services secretary, a move drawing praise from health groups nationwide, including Karen Larson, deputy director of the Community Health Care Centers of the Dakotas. She explains that North Dakotans are lucky to have a former Senator in this position.

"It’s very difficult sometimes to have somebody at that level in federal government who really understands the nature of frontier rural health care."

Larson believes the nation’s weak economy is going to put extra pressure on the new Secretary of Health and Human Services to meet growing needs.

"He will feel the demand for some of the care at community health centers, because people have lost jobs, lost insurance, or don’t qualify for any other program. "

According to the latest statistics, 65,000 North Dakotans are uninsured and about 15,000 of them are children. The Community Health Care Centers in North Dakota provide medical services to both under-served rural and urban areas.
