New York, November 29, 2016: US President-elect Donald Trump selected on Monday a second Indian American, Seema Verma, for a high-level position in his administration, assigning her “to the dream team that will transform our healthcare system”.
NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.
As the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, she will play a crucial role in carrying out the high-priority Trump campaign promise of scrapping President Barack Obama’s health care programme and replacing it with “something better.”
Last week Trump announced that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, a cabinet-level post.
Although Verma’s job is not of cabinet rank now, it has great political importance and she will be in the national spotlight because of the Republican vow to end and replace Obama’s signature healthcare reform, which attempted to make affordable health insurance available to all.
NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.
She will be working with Congressman Tom Price, the House Budget Committee Chairman, who is to become the Secretary of Health and Human Services, a cabinet-level position.
Announcing his intent to nominate them, Trump said: “Together, Chairman Price and Seema Verma are the dream team that will transform our healthcare system for the benefit of all Americans.”
About Verma, Trump said: “She has decades of experience advising on Medicare and Medicaid policy and helping states navigate our complicated systems.”

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:
Every child responds differently to disturbing events: What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices. With more and more devices, more and more chargers are sold that are not interchangeable or not necessary. We are putting an end to that," the report quoted EU commissioner Thierry Breton as saying.
The Commission also wants to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices, which it says will improve the consumers' convenience. "With our proposal, European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste." In addition, the Commission will require manufacturers to provide relevant information about charging performance. (IANS/MBI)
