Statement by Louis W. Sullivan, MD on the Loss of Arlen Specter

Washington, DC, October 15, 2012

Message from Louis W. Sullivan, MD:

Former U.S. Senator Arlen Specter was a giant in the world of American politics and policy.  He was tireless in his efforts to address health disparities in American society. I worked with Senator Specter professionally for many years and will always appreciate his determination and support in creating a strong national health research infrastructure. The new National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities at the National Institutes of Health stands as testament to that deep and sustained commitment.

I, and all of The Sullivan Alliance staff and directors, send our thoughts and prayers to the Specter family at this difficult time.
