WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has introduced Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as his choice to be secretary of health and human services.

Obama on Monday also announced that he has selected Nancy-Ann DeParle to be director of the White House Office for Health Reform.

At the announcement, Obama said health care premiums have grown four times as fast as wages over the past eight years, and he called it "one of the fastest growing expenses in the federal budget."

Obama said "there's no easy formula for fixing our health care system." The president's announcement comes just days before he holds a White House summit on health care.
