U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday filled out his health team, announcing Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine as his choice for assistant U.S. health secretary as his administration takes office this week amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Levine was one of the few transgender individuals serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide, the AP added, noting Levine won past confirmation by the Republican-majority Pennsylvania Senate and "has emerged as the public face of the state's response to the coronavirus pandemic".

Levine is a physician who is now serving as Pennsylvania's secretary of health.

Dr Levine would serve under Mr Xavier Becerra, Mr Biden's nominee to lead the US Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Levine is also a graduate of Harvard College and the Tulane University School of Medicine.

Levine is now the secretary of health in Pennsylvania, where she leads the state's fight against COVID-19. Her expertise over the years ranges from the opioid crisis, medical marijuana, adolescent medicine, eating disorder, and LGBT medicine, according to her bio.

Later on Tuesday, the incoming president will deliver remarks at a COVID-19 memorial event at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington alongside Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. "It's not the vaccine that's the issue". It's vaccination. We have to get them administered to people.

The Pennsylvania Equality Project celebrated her nomination, saying in a statement to CBS Philly: "W$3 e could not possibly be more excited for her and our community to have such awesome and inspiring representation at the highest levels of our government. Dr. Levine is both competent and compassionate, and never lets the anger or fear of others sway her from her goals". "I couldn't be prouder of the tireless work she's done to serve Pennsylvanians and protect the public health". The professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at the Penn State College of Medicine has led Pennsylvania's response to the novel coronavirus outbreak as the commonwealth's top health official. She called out those responsible at a press briefing in July.

"To perpetuators and the perpetrators of these actions, if your apologies are honest, then I accept them".
