US Surgeon General attends Adventists InStep for Life Celebration Event at the Health Summit in Florida
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin stepped down as Surgeon General on July 2013. Among her achievements, as chair of the National Prevention Council, she led the release of the nation's first National Prevention Strategy. She also released the Surgeon General's Vision for a Healthy and Fit Nation, the Surgeon General's Report on Preventing Tobacco Use among Youth and Young Adults and the Surgeon General's Report on How Tobacco Smoke Causes Disease - the "Heart Stopper Report." Secretary Sebelius commended Dr. Benjamin's service by saying that, "The Surgeon General's road to prevention has touched the lives of millions of Americans and has had a positive impact on the health of this Nation."
Dr Benjamin was very supportive and appreciative of the Adventists InStep for Life health initiative, attending our Summit and InStep Celebration on 2012 and giving awards to the health ministries leaders present. We thank and celebrate Dr Regina Benjamin for her invaluable contributions for the health of the Nation! Read the latest news about that occasion here.
