President-elect Donald Trump is filling more positions in his cabinet, naming a transportation secretary and secretary for health and human services.

The president-elect has picked Congressman Dr. Tom Price as secretary for health and human services.

Congressman Price was born in Lansing and has his degree in medicine from the University of Michigan.

In a statement, Trump says, "Price is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare."
