HHS Sec­re­tary Sylvia Mathews Bur­well has named her chief of staff, An­drea Palm, as a se­nior coun­selor—the third such ap­pointee since July. Palm, 41, who has been HHS’ chief of staff since 2013, will keep that role in ad­di­tion to serv­ing as a se­nior coun­selor. As a se­nior coun­selor, she will work on “key strate­gic ini­tia­tives” within HHS.

She has been with HHS since Pres­i­dent Barack Obama took of­fice. She has worked on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the health­care re­form law and pub­lic health is­sues, such as com­pound­ing phar­ma­cies and the H1N1 pan­demic.
