Zeke Emanuel, a health adviser in the Office of Budget Management, left his White House post this week, a senior administration confirms to POLITICO.
Brother to former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who is now running for mayor in Chicago, Zeke joined the Office of Budget Management in February 2009, just as the health reform debate was getting underway.
Emanuel will return to his old post, directing the National Institute of Health’s bioethics department, a position he held for just over a decade before joing the administration. In academic circles, Emanuel is well-know for his work on end-of-life issues and euthanasia.
