The U.S. Surgeon General Envisions Optimal Medicine

Posted by Admin on August 1, 2011
Dr. Regina Benjamin, the Surgeon General of the United States, discusses Optimal Medicine as a new vision for health - a vision in which people take responsibility and care for the own health. It is a vision that sees health as a positive, not about disease or illness, but about a living a fun and fit life.

“Americans will be more likely to change their behavior if they have a meaningful reward--something more than just reaching a certain weight or dress size. The real reward is invigorating, energizing, joyous health. It is a level of health that allows people to embrace each day and live their lives to the fullest without disease or disability.”

She also talks about the building a community of health. A community in which people take care of each other, physicians and nurses take care of patients – and at times a community in which patients help and take care of the doctors.

Regina M. Benjamin, M.D., M.B.A. is the 18th Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service. As America’s Doctor, she provides the public with the best scientific information available on how to improve their health and the health of the nation. Dr. Benjamin also oversees the operational command of 6,500 uniformed health officers who serve in locations around the world to promote, protect, and advance the health of the American People.
