PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine’s largest city’s new director of public health will lead Portland’s city health department after serving as its acting chief.

City officials say Toho Suma was chosen for the position after serving as acting director of the $6 million public health department. Suma previously spent seven years as the city’s health equity and research program manager and two years as its public health information coordinator.

Portland’s public health department includes programs about chronic disease preventions, environmental health and safety, family health, health equity and research and infectious diseases.
