Two new state health officials appointed
By Stephen Smith, Globe Staff
The former chief of the state's HIV/AIDS Bureau and a top United Way official were appointed assistant secretaries of health today by Dr. JudyAnn Bigby, Massachusetts's health secretary.
Jean McGuire, who was an assistant commissioner in the Department of Public Health from 1997 to 2003, is the new assistant secretary for disability policies and programs. McGuire presided over the AIDS division at the public health agency before leaving for a position at Northeastern University. Early in her career, McGuire's work focused on special education and rehabilitation of adults with significant disabilities.
Marilyn Anderson Chase will be assistant secretary for children, youth, and families. Chase spent 10 years as senior vice president for community impact at the United Way of Massachusetts Bay.
