Gov. Kevin Stitt announced Friday morning his pick for a new interim director of the State Department of Health.
Col. Lance Frye, a Tulsa resident, is currently serving as the State Air Surgeon of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, a role he said he will continue in during his time as health commissioner. Frye is also an OB/GYN and professor at the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences.
"Col. Frye is the right leader at the right time," Stitt said in his announcement from the Capitol on Friday.
