Charmaine Yoest, former president of Americans United for Life (AUL), has been given a key administration post at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The White House announced Friday that Yoest will be the assistant secretary of public affairs at HHS.
In her new role with the agency, Yoest will shape its messaging and communications. She is currently a senior fellow at the conservative group American Values. Yoest previously led AUL, an influential pro-life non-profit that “works through the law and legislative process to one end: Achieving comprehensive legal protection for human life from conception to natural death.”
Yoest will be replacing Kevin Griffis, who has been named Vice President for Communications at Planned Parenthood.
