BONN — West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl has appointed education professor Rita Suessmuth as new Health, Youth and Family Affairs Minister, a government spokesman said Friday.

She succeeds Heiner Geissler, Christian Democratic Union general-secretary, who said earlier this year that he would relinquish the ministerial post to give full attention to his party's campaign for the 1987 West German elections. Suessmuth, 48, married with a daughter, is professor of educational science at Dortmund University. She will take up her post in the fall.
