Dr. Narendra Kini, CEO of Nicklaus Children’s Health System, has been elected by Governor-elect Ron DeSantis to serve as an advisor on the Transition Advisory Committee on Health and Wellness, a group of 50 health care experts from a variety of different medical fields across Florida’s health care system. The committee will be chaired by Lieutenant Governor-elect Jeanette Nuñez and co-chaired by Alan Levine, former Secretary of Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration.
“I am honored to sit on Governor-elect DeSantis’ Transition Advisory Committee on Health and Wellness and look forward to working with his team on health policy to address inequities in access to pediatric health care, as well as opportunities to enhance training of future pediatric specialists and sub-specialists,” said Dr. Kini.
The group will advise the Transition Team as they develop their plan to implement Governor-elect DeSantis’ vision of empowering patients and expanding provider reach, fighting addiction and mental health problems and protecting Florida’s most vulnerable populations while lowering costs and respecting taxpayers’ money.
