   PRESS RELEASE:


   Romney Campaign Names Josh Valdez, DBA, to Chair Health
   Care Insurance Industry Group
   Mon, 20 Aug 2012, 03:58:23 EDT


   LOS ANGELES, Calif., Aug. 20, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Latino
   Consultants, LLC would like to share today that Josh Valdez, DBA, the former
   Regional Director for the Federal Department of Health and Human Services
   (DHHS), has been named the Chair of Health Care Insurance Industry Group
   by the Romney for President campaign.

   Dr. Valdez, who is the President and CEO of Right Way HealthCare
   Consulting, was also the highest ranking Latino as the Senior Vice President of
   Health Care Management for WellPoint from 2003-2007 and was appointed by
   President George W. Bush to be the Regional Director for DHHS, 2001-2003.
   He also co-authored "Strategies for Improving Latino Health Care in America"
   which included budget-neutral recommendations for expanding access.

   His appointment as Chair of Health Care Insurance Industry Group by the
   Romney for President campaign is a major indicator that the Romney/Paul
   Campaign values the Hispanic Community as a critical voting bloc.

   "There is nothing more important than ensuring health access in a way that is fair to all Americans and business, and I am
   going to pour all my 24 years of health care experience into this role for Governor Romney and Representative Paul," said Dr.
   Valdez. "Health care is more than politics. It's an important part of education, jobs, and, of course, family. That's why I am
   honored to continue to serve the American People."

   Dr. Valdez also serves as a commissioner at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for eliminating racial disparities in health
   care and is a board member for the Hispanic Alliance for Prosperity. He has held past appointments as a member of the White
   House Council on Aging, Chairman of the U.S. Latino Health Task Force, and gubernatorial appointee of the California Health
   Policy and Data Commission.

   Dr. Valdez has been recognized as one of the 15 most influential Hispanics in the United States by The Latino Coalition and
   one of the 10 most influential Latinos in the healthcare sector by Hispanic Business. He is married to Elizabeth and has three
   children, Gabriel, Noah and Jacob.
