Stuart Bowen Jr., inspector general for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, took over Feb. 26 following his appointment by Gov. Greg Abbott and subsequent Senate confirmation.
“I consider it a great privilege that Gov. Abbott picked me in an important role for integrity of public health system,” Bowen said. “I’m committed to bringing transparency and accountability of tens of billions of dollars supporting the delivery of health and human services across the state.”
Bowen oversees the division of the commission that audits state and federal funds to uncover fraud, waste and abuse throughout the agency’s jurisdiction.
