AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement about Eduardo Sanchez’s decision to depart his post as Commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services:

“In his nearly five years of service as Commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, Dr. Sanchez has served the people of Texas with an unwavering commitment to improving public health for all Texans. Dr. Sanchez efficiently directed the consolidation of public health agencies to better serve the needs of citizens and communities, with a strong commitment to diabetes prevention, promoting healthier lifestyles for Texans and ensuring Texas is prepared for a pandemic flu event. Dr. Sanchez also led the public health response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita, ensuring the compassionate care of nearly 400,000 evacuees who sought refuge and comfort in our state.
