WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) released the following statement regarding Duke University Health System CEO Dr. Victor J. Dzau being named as the next president of the Institute of Medicine:

“I congratulate Dr. Victor Dzau on being named the new president of the Institute of Medicine, the health arm of the National Academies.   For decades, Dr. Dzau has been recognized as a world-renowned pioneer in scientific and medical research.  As Duke University’s Chancellor of Health Affairs, President and CEO of Duke University Health System, and a James B. Duke Professor of Medicine, Dr. Dzau’s commitments to students, faculty, and the patients they serve has been nothing short of exemplary.  Dr. Dzau shoes will be hard to fill, but, our loss is the nation’s gain, as Dr. Dzau goes on to capably lead a key national organization responsible for many of the most important medical findings in recent history.  I am confident Dr. Dzau will continue to do extraordinary work that will benefit North Carolinians and all Americans.”
