“Dr. Murthy’s dedication for improving the health outcomes by engaging communities has been the backbone of his career and is the foundation on which he based Doctors for America, a movement of 16,000 physicians and medical students nationwide. And, it is the same approach we are certain he will bring to this new role to build health initiatives across the country to address the nation’s most pressing public health challenges.”
