Alex Azar was sworn in Monday as the new Health and Human Services secretary.

Back in November, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter Azar would be the new HHS secretary.

Azar was deputy secretary of Health and Human Services under former President George W. Bush.

Azar fills former secretary Tom Price's seat. Price resigned after an investigation looked into how he spent taxpayer money on private and military flights.
