Wolf’s avant-garde appointment of a transgender woman for physician general is certain;ly welcomed news.

Saturday Pennsylvania Governor-Elect Tom Wolf named four more members of his cabinet in a press release, one of which is a transgender woman, Dr. Rachel Levine, who will serve as his physician general.

Governor-Elect Tom Wolf explained why he choose Dr. Livine:

“Dr. Rachel Levine is well-respected in the fields of pediatrics, psychiatry, and behavioral health, where she has practiced for close to three decades. She has been a leading voice in efforts to treat teens with medical and psychological problems, as well as adults and children with eating disorders. It is important to me that we place equal emphasis on behavioral and physical health issues. Dr. Levine will bring expertise and wide-ranging knowledge to this important role advising the secretary of Health and me on medical and public health matters,” Wolf concluded.

She also serves as vice chair for clinical affairs for the Department of Pediatrics and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.

She also has worked closely with the Penn State Hershey Office of Diversity as the liaison for LGBT Affairs, mentoring and assisting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students, faculty and staff.
