Surgeon General Nominee Regina Benjamin
This White House Blog post is about the nomination of Regina Benjamin to be Surgeon General. From what I've read about her so far, I'm very excited about this nomination, and am glad that Sanjay Gupta didn't wind up getting the job. She has experience in the sort of health care that rarely gets an advocate, a small rural practice among the poor. Let's hope she remains a strong advocate for these least-listened to segments of the populace.
