Graham named to corporate board

Former Sen. Bob Graham has been appointed to serve on the board of directors of Tampa-based WellCare Health Plans.

The former two-term governor was appointed to fill a 2-year term that ends in 2009. The company, which provides managed care services for government-sponsored healthcare programs, noted that the Florida Democrat was "very active in policy for seniors."

"Bob Graham brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to WellCares Board of Directors," said Todd Farha, the company's chairman and chief executive officer. "Sen. Graham is a recognized leader in healthcare policy issues both at the state and national level. We look forward to Senator Grahams many contributions as WellCare continues to deliver value-added solutions for state Medicaid and national Medicare programs."

Graham, a former chair of the Senate intelligence committee, decided not to run for re-election after he folded his presidential campaign in 2004. Since retiring from the Senate, he's served as a senior fellow at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and is "currently focused on founding a center to educate future political and civic leaders located at the University of Florida and at the University of Miami."
