(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett is nominating the man who's been Pennsylvania's acting Health secretary since October to take the position on a permanent basis.

The governor said Friday his choice to lead the 1,700-employee Health Department is Michael Wolf, a former public affairs and policy director with Pfizer.

Wolf has a master's degree from the University of Phoenix and attended college at Slippery Rock University. The 46-year-old lives in Enola, Cumberland County.

Wolf's predecessor is Dr. Eli Avila, who said when he quit last year that he wanted to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family.

Wolf's confirmation requires Senate approval.
