Surgeon General Regina Benjamin to Leave Post

| On 14, Jun 2013

Regina Benjamin surgeon general Barack Obama president public health doctor

Here is someone in government you don’t hear about too often.

U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin has announced her resignation from her post. She will officially leave her office in July. Deputy Surgeon General¬†Boris Lushniak will fill Benjamin’s role until a replacement is found. Benjamin has served under President Obama since 2009.

Surprisingly, the surgeon general has come under little fire during Obama’s time in office. You know conservatives stay ready to attack all of the president’s appointees. As America’s chief physician, Benjamin has been responsible for public health initiatives in the country — including smoking cessation, healthy lifestyles, and minority needs.

Benjamin said in an email to her staff on Wednesday that she will remain in the public health space. No official reason was given about her decision to leave her post. I can only imagine that serving under the microscope of Washington, D.C. politics have played a strong role.

Despite her exit from D.C. and a return to her south Alabama home, there is talk that Benjamin may run for a seat in the U.S. House. She has made no comment officially. That may be a good look for her.

We wish her well.
