As you may be aware, Dr. Vivek Murthy’s confirmation to serve as the next U.S. Surgeon General is being threatened by pressure from the National Rifle Association, whose leaders are lobbying senators to oppose Vivek on the grounds of his support for common-sense approaches like background checks to address the public health crisis of gun violence. An effective champion of just, affordable health care for all, Dr. Murthy has much to offer our country as an outspoken leader on behalf of patients.
Please take a moment today to contact your senators and voice support for Dr. Vivek Murthy. These messages DO make a difference!
