New Healing Arts Board Director Coming to Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) An Arizona medical regulator has been picked as the next executive director of the Kansas Board of Healing Arts.

Jack Confer will take the position being vacated by Larry Buening, who resigned earlier this year as head of the Kansas agency that licenses and regulates doctors.

Confer has been executive director of the Arizona State Board of Osteopathic Examiners in Medicine and Surgery for three years. He also worked for other agencies, including the Arizona attorney general's office.

Confer starts July 14.

Buening resigned after he and the board were criticized for taking too long to investigate complaints about doctors and not issuing stronger sanctions against those who violated regulations.
