Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump’s nom­i­nee for HHS Sec­re­tary, Rep. Tom Price, will sell off stock hold­ings to avoid po­ten­tial con­flicts of in­ter­est.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Price’s ethics agree­ment and fi­nan­cial dis­clo­sure were posted on­line by the Of­fice of Gov­ern­ment Ethics. If con­firmed by the Se­nate, the Repub­li­can sur­geon from Ge­or­gia would di­vest him­self of stock in more than 40 com­pa­nies. He’ll also re­sign a po­si­tion with the Amer­i­can Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, as well as a man­ag­ing role in a busi­ness part­ner­ship. Democrats said the move does not clear up con­cerns about his in­vest­ment prac­tices.
