U.S. Surgeon General Nominee Speaks at United Tribes

Posted: Updated:

A nominee for United States Surgeon General was in Bismarck this afternoon discussing disparities in the health field. Dr. Don Warne, who is originally from Fargo, says it's important to insure that there is equal access to healthcare to all citizens in the country. He says this will be his focus, whether he remains in his position at NDSU or is selected as Surgeon General.

"Unfortunately in our population we have many segments of the population, fellow Americans who simply don't have access to adequate health services and as a result suffer and die unnecessarily," says Dr. Warne.

He says there have been several other qualified people nominated for the position, and he feels honored to be part of the discussion.
