Frist to make first congressional appearance since leaving Senate

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is headed for his first appearance before Congress since leaving office.

Frist left Washington last year after two terms as a Republican senator from Tennessee.

Frist was scheduled to testify about efforts to reduce infant mortality before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health on Thursday morning.

Since leaving politics, Frist has become chairman of Save the Children's "Survive to 5" campaign. He has also said he's considering a gubernatorial bid in Tennessee in 2010.
