Frist launches new global health Web site

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is launching a new Web site to promote global health initiatives.

Frist says the Web site for the nonprofit organization Hope Through Healing Hands will serve as a resource for people interested in both global and domestic health issues, including ways to prevent child mortality, AIDS and extreme poverty.

First is chairman of the organization that promotes health care as what he calls "a currency for peace."

Frist was a transplant surgeon at Vanderbilt before being elected to the Senate in 1994. The Republican has said he will make up his mind about whether to run for Tennessee governor early next year.
