Surgeon general confirmation: Dr. Vivek Murthy is a vibrant spokesman

When the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Dr. Vivek Murthy as the new surgeon general [“Senate approves Obama pick for surgeon general,” Nation & World, Dec. 15], the American people gained a vibrant spokesman and strong proponent of our public health.

As the youngest surgeon general in history, he will bring entrepreneurial and organizational skills. He is known as a person of integrity who leads not through authority or rank but through example and engagement.

His confirmation is a testament not only to his quiet determination, but also to the advocacy of doctors across the country who believe in his vision for a more just, affordable health-care system.

And now, let us all roll up our sleeves and work with him to improve the health of our nation.

Lisa Plymate, Seattle, Washington state director of Doctors for America
