Dr. David Shulkin, the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s nom­i­nee for Vet­er­ans Af­fairs un­der­sec­re­tary for health, was ap­proved last week by a voice vote of the Se­nate Vet­er­ans Af­fairs’ Com­mit­tee. His nom­i­na­tion now goes be­fore the full Se­nate for a con­fir­ma­tion vote.

Shulkin, pres­i­dent of the At­lantic Health Sys­tem’s Mor­ris­town (N.J.) Med­i­cal Cen­ter since 2010, ap­peared be­fore the com­mit­tee at a May 5 LaV­erne Coun­cil, hear­ing along with Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s nom­i­nee to be VA as­sis­tant sec­re­tary for in­for­ma­tion and tech­nol­ogy. The com­mit­tee also en­dorsed Coun­cil’s nom­i­na­tion.

Coun­cil was cor­po­rate VP and chief In­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer at John­son & John­son from 2006 to 2011 un­til she started her own com­pany, Coun­cil Ad­vi­sory Ser­vices, in 2012.
