Surgeon General receives 2012 Distinguished Public Service Award from internal medicine physicians
Date:6/7/2012

Washington Regina M. Benjamin, MD, MBA, the U.S. Surgeon General, is the recipient of the 2012 Joseph F. Boyle Award for Distinguished Public Service by the American College of Physicians (ACP). Dr. Benjamin accepted the annual award at a ceremony this morning as part of ACP's Leadership Day program.

"This award is given each year to a government official or physician acting in an official capacity (state or federal, executive or legislative) who has provided outstanding public service toward improving the delivery of health care," David L. Bronson, MD, FACP, president of ACP said. "Dr. Benjamin was selected to be the 2012 recipient due to her leadership as Surgeon General in the development of a National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy."

Dr. Benjamin's comprehensive plan seeks to transform the U.S. health care system to focus on prevention and wellness instead of sickness and disease. As America's Doctor, Dr. Benjamin provides the public with the best scientific information available on how to improve their health and the health of the nation. She also oversees the operational command of 6,500 uniformed public health officers who serve in locations around the world to promote and protect the health of the American people.

"We applaud you for being a strong advocate for building healthy and safe community environments, expanding quality preventive services in both clinical and community settings, empowering people to make healthy choices, and eliminating health disparities," Dr. Bronson said as he presented the award. "We also strongly support your work to reduce teenage smoking rates and your recent report Preventing Tobacco Use Among Youth and Young Adults that detailed the health risks and medical costs associated with this habit."
