Former Broward Health CEO Now Wrestling With Public Health Effects of Massive Oil Spill

Looks like Alan Levine has managed to find a job that's tougher than the one he had managing the North Broward Hospital District. The former Broward Health CEO left the district in December 2007 to become the secretary of Louisiana's Department of Health and Hospitals, which means he's going to help that disaster-battered state devise a strategy for protecting its citizens from the effects of this environmental catastrophe.

Here's video of an interview that Levine recently gave to a local TV news station. It's good to hear that air quality hasn't suffered, despite the fact that there's reportedly an unpleasant odor coming in off the ocean.
