U.S. African Chamber Of Commerce Congratulates U.S. on New Surgeon General, May Improve Health Care for Middle Income Families
Date:7/14/2009

U.S. African Chamber Of Commerce congratulates Dr. Regina Benjamin as President Obama's pick for surgeon general.

Washington, DC (Vocus) June 14, 2009 --   U.S. African Chamber Of Commerce congratulates Dr. Regina Benjamin as President Obama's pick for surgeon general. The Alabama family physician has been an advocate for universal care, and is expected to have a role "at the table" in health reform, which would be an unusual degree of influence over policy for a surgeon general. Obama said Benjamin "represents what's best about health care in America."

CBS/Associated Press reports: "Having lost most of her family members to preventable diseases, such as HIV, diabetes, and lung cancer, Benjamin said she feels a personal connection to public health issues." Benjamin "is most famous for the role she played in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when she was determined to rebuild her rural health clinic in Bayou La Batre, Ala., despite hurricane and fire destruction." She received a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" last September for her clinic, which serves 4,400 patients. CBS also notes: "Benjamin became President of the Medical Association of the State of Alabama in 2002, becoming the first black woman to head a state medical society and received the Nelson Mandela Award for Health and Human Rights. She is the Immediate Past-Chair of the Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States, and previously served as Associate Dean for Rural Health at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine."
