State Health Commissioner Prepares For New Role

Outgoing Rhode Island Department of Health director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott is transitioning into a consulting role with the state.

The doctor will earn nearly fifty-thousand dollars per month on the temporary contract to advise the state on the COVID-19 pandemic and the merger of the two-largest RI healthcare systems.

Alexander-Scott is considered a potential candidate to run for Congress.

She says her focus right now is on the many important issues before the health department, but that she is weighing a number of options for the future.

She does not speculate on when she may decide what her next job may be.
