During the legislative session, which was held today, the majority of senators voted in the affirmative for the nomination of Dr. Michelle S. Davis, to the position of commissioner designee of the Department of Health
In a statement before the members of the legislature, Dr. Davis thanked Governor Mapp, the senators, DOH staff, the U.S. Virgin Islands community, her federal colleagues and family. I want to thank you for your vote of confidence in my abilities to lead the department into a future that benefits the whole territory."
The newly designated commissioner is planning an all staff meeting, Friday, June 17th to discuss her vision, mission and goals with the entire DOH staff and to create a progressive culture and developmental opportunities within the department. We have many tasks ahead of us to continue to build the infrastructure of this agency and become the premiere health department in the nation. I am looking forward to working with you to achieve this goal.
