OLYMPIA (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Tuesday appointed Dr. Umair A. Shah as the state's new secretary of health.
Shah, who will start Dec. 21, currently serves as executive director and local health authority for Harris County Public Health in Houston, Texas. He will replace John Wiesman, who announced in May that he will resign his role in January 2021 to take a job at the University of North Carolina after staying on a few weeks to help with the transition.
