National Advisory Board Member Confirmed as Surgeon General

The Kennedy-Satcher Center For Mental Health Equity would like to congratulate Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy, MD, MBA, for his confirmation as 21st Surgeon General of the United States.  Vice Admiral Murthy has been a longstanding supporter of our center and an advocate toward the advancement of mental health equity.

In his second round as Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Murthy will be stepping down from the KSCMHE National Advisory Board. We are honored for the time and effort you dedicated to our center and look forward to the great leaps you will continue to make in your new role as our Nation’s Doctor.

We know we can continue to count on the expertise, support, and guidance of our new Surgeon General to continue to elevate the need for equitable mental healthcare for all.

We wish Vice Admiral Murthy good luck and great success with our deepest appreciation for his many contributions to this effort.
