Margaret Hamburg


Margaret Hamburg played the Secretary of Health & Human Services in Operation Dark Winter.

Commissioner of Food and Drugs

"Many had high hopes for the FDA when Margaret Hamburg was confirmed as Commissioner in 2009 because of her public health background. But she swiftly moved to loosen conflict of interest rules governing those who can serve on FDA expert advisory panels, claiming it was too hard to find experts without Pharma financial links."[1]
