Governor-Elect Mills Nominates Jeanne Lambrew, PhD as HHS Commissioner

Lambrew grew up in Cape Elizabeth and is the daughter of Costas "Gus" Lambrew, M.D. and Pat Lambrew, RN.  Dr. Lambrew practiced cardiology at the Maine Medical Center for 40 years and he and Pat reside currently in Scarborough.
A graduate of Amherst College and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Lambrew has had a distinguished career in academia and in government. From 2009-2011 she served in the Obama White House as Deputy Director of the Office of Health Reform and was a key contributor in the drafting of the Affordable Care Act. She had previously served in the Clinton Administration where she helped analyze health issues and develop proposals as a program associate director at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and as the senior health analyst at the National Economic Council.
Lambrew began her academic career as an assistant professor at Georgetown University. She moved to the Department of Health and Human Services during the 1993-94 push for health care legislation, and she went on to coordinate budget proposal analysis in 1995. She later worked at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services as an associate professor. She moved to the Lyndon Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, where she served as an associate professor of public affairs. She has also served as senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and co-authored a book, Critical: What We Can Do About the Healthcare Crisis, with former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle.
Most recently, she has been a Senior Fellow at The Century Foundation where she conducted research on policies to improve health care access, quality and affordability. 
Lanbrew's appointment is the first cabinet level position to be announced by Governor-elect Mills. Lambrew is expected to begin work at the Department immediately following confirmation hearings and Senate votes which will take place over several weeks following the Jan. 2 inauguration of Governor Mills.
