Richard Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health, will be sworn in Tuesday as an admiral of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a 6,000-person force that responds to health crises on behalf of the federal government, including administering coronavirus vaccines and delivering care after hurricanes.

 

In an interview, Levine stressed that his new position as an admiral was “not just symbolic,” and that he would take a leadership role in shaping the public health corps’ priorities. “I’m doing this because of my dedication to service … and with the utmost respect and honor for the uniform that I will be wearing,” Levine said, adding he would begin wearing the group’s blue uniform immediately.
