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

CBS quotes Benjamin on her vision: "'My hope, if confirmed as surgeon general, is to be America's doctor, America's family physician. ... As we work toward a solution to this health care crisis, I promise to communicate directly with the American people to help guide them through whatever changes may come with health care reform.'" (7/13).

Bloomberg reports on Benjamin's commitment to providing care to the underserved and will likely focus on issues such as doctor shortages, inefficient care, preventative care and better access to care in low-income and rural areas. Bloomberg notes: "Obama, at a White House ceremony yesterday, restated his support for winning passage this year of legislation to cover the estimated 46 million uninsured in the U.S. and rein in medical costs. Benjamin, whose nomination needs Senate approval, will be a crucial voice in the debate, he said." James Rohack, president of the Chicago-based American Medical Association, said that "in an administration dedicated to revamping health-care, Benjamin will be one of the few physicians in a high-profile position within the Obama administration" (Nussbaum, 7/14).

NPR: "If she is confirmed, Benjamin would direct the operations of the 6,000-member U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a team of health professionals that promotes public health and disease prevention programs. She also would serve as the country's top educator on health matters ranging from childhood obesity to eliminating health disparities. The office is under the Department of Health and Human Services, which is overseen by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius"
