Dr. Robert Moser has resigned as secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
His resignation will be effective at the end of the month.
Moser broke the news to the agency’s staff late Monday afternoon in an email.
“I am stepping down from my current position as KDHE secretary and state health officer effective the end of November,” Moser said.
Moser said “it was a hard decision” to leave the state’s public health and Medicaid agency.
“However, it is the right time for me and my family to look at other opportunities,” he said.
