Gov. Daugaard Names Kim Malsam-Rysdon As Secretary Of Health

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today that he will appoint Kim Malsam-Rysdon as Secretary of Health.

Malsam-Rysdon has held the position in an interim role since last month. She will replace Secretary Doneen Hollingsworth, who retired after nineteen years as secretary.

“Public health has never been more important as we see the need to respond to emerging issues such as Ebola and a recent outbreak of contagious diseases like measles”, said Gov. Daugaard. “Kim will not only be able to lead our state’s response to these issues but also ensure we are doing all we can to address chronic diseases and access to quality health care services across our state”.

Malsam-Rysdon will continue to serve as senior advisor to the Governor and as a member of the Governor’s Executive Committee. She previously served as Secretary of the Department of Social Services.

“I appreciate the ability to serve the state of South Dakota in this role and look forward to leading our state’s health department,” said Malsam-Rysdon. “Public health issues and access to health care are critical issues that impact individuals and families across South Dakota. I look forward to working with stakeholders throughout our state to address these needs.

  1. I must have missed the retirement of Hollingsworth. What a great public servant she has been. Thanks Doneen.

  2. I wasn’t impressed with her at Social Services. Seems like the Dept always took the woman’s side in child custody cases. The poor man, no matter how decent, honest, or well-intended, always got the short end of the deal. (Who syas we shouldn’t be suspicious of uppity women with hyphonated names ?)

  3. Online shopping can be a great way to get your info stolen if
    you don’t take precautions. If you took down the exact title
    although you ended up in the retailer, it’s extremely simple
    to jump on 1 of people sites and search for the exact pair you want.
    On the web Advertising – Just like broadcast and newspaper advertisements
    come to thoughts with offline advertising, banner advertisements are most likely the 1st that come to head with
    on the web advertising and marketing.

  4. There has been a great deal of interest in the possible benefits for healthy functioning of the brain from taking
    the supplement Ginkgo biloba. What this all fails to acknowledge is that turmeric is one of many herbs that address pain in the body.
    I’ve been suckered into many ineffective products, and so
    have millions of other confused bodybuilders.
