In November of 2013, President Barack Obama nominated Dr. Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General of the United States. But right-wing politicians are standing in the way of his confirmation, leaving all of us without a "top doc" for the nation. Whether it’s the unprecedented spread of Ebola or a bad flu epidemic, healthcare workers are on the frontlines of public health scares and crises every day. There’s no place for politics when people are putting their lives on the line.
to sign the petition to say you "stand with Vivek" for surgeon general.
