Dear Dr. Prentice:

I am writing to extend my appreciation to you and the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP) for your recent recommendations.

I have asked the Office of Civil Rights, which has the lead on HIPAA privacy within my department, to carefully evaluate these recommendations as quickly as possible.

Thank you and the Committee for a job well done.


Tommy G. Thompson
