US Surgeon General Regina Benjamin Resigns

 The name Dr. Regina Benjamin is not really a household name, but it should be. After four amazing years serving as the US Surgeon General, Dr. Regina Benjamin will step down from her post.

Our hats go off to Dr. Benjamin for being a major advocate for disease prevention, maintaining healthy lifestyles and wellness. She has helped to shift the awareness of Americans on pressing issues  such as America's obesity epidemic. 

Dr. Benjamin released the first ever National Prevention Strategy, as well as The Surgeon General's Vision for a Healthy and Fit Nation. 

We can only hope that our next Surgeon General continues to further Dr. Benjamin's efforts to help us do our part; starting with ourselves!

Live Well, Be Strong!
