Dr. Vivek Murthy has a tremendous dedication and commitment to improving the health of the nation. He has worked to improve the well-being of communities for twenty years through public health education, patient care, and training the next generation of health care providers.
From his clinical practice to his service on the national Prevention Advisory Group, Dr. Murthy brings great credibility and a deep understanding of the importance of prevention to people and their health. For this reason, he has been endorsed by the American College of Physicians, the American Public Health Association, and dozens of other nursing, medical, and health organizations. A single special-interest group (the NRA) should not stand in the way of a transformative Surgeon General.
