Noem to name Sioux Falls doctor as Social Services secretary

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Gov. Kristi Noem is naming a Sioux Falls physician to serve as Department of Social Services secretary.

The Republican governor said Thursday that she will appoint M. Gregory DeSautel to the cabinet post. DeSautel works at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls and is a professor at the University of South Dakota School of Medicine.

Noem says DeSautel is “full of new perspectives.” Noem says he will be valuable to her team as they seek to educate South Dakota about the need for foster and adoptive families and safe homes for all children.

DeSautel says he’s committed to working “relentlessly” to strengthen South Dakota families.
