The Executive Council voted Wednesday to confirm Jeffrey Meyers as Commissioner of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Meyers has been the interim commissioner since early January, when Commissioner Nick Toumpas stepped down. Meyers has held other positions in state government, including as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for DHHS, as well as Chief Legal Counsel to former Governor John Lynch and legal counsel to the state Senate.

Meyers has been appointed to a four-year term as commissioner.
