Congratulations US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy

By Elena Ong, PHN, MS 

On December 15, 2014, the US Senate voted, 51-43, to confirm Dr. Vivek Murthy US Surgeon General.

After waiting more than a year for this confirmation, we can proudly call him Vice Admiral Vivek Hallegere Murthy, 19th Surgeon General of the United States.

Dr. Murthy is the first US Surgeon General of Indian American descent, and the youngest US Surgeon General in US history.
