Just a nice moment.
Congratulations to Dr. Vivek Murthy, our nation’s nineteenth Surgeon General. Here’s a nice article in Vox about what he hopes to do in the position. Here’s another on why I am especially gratifiedÂ by the outcomes of the successful nomination fight.
Also congrats to Dr. Alice Chen, with whom I worked closely at Doctors for America, which I advise. Â I remember especially fondly sharing a burger with Alice and my brother-in-law Vincent while Vinnie and I were on a Hollywood vacation.Â Alice is a whirling dervish of energy. And she does it all with a smile.
PS. Congratulations to both Dr. Murthy and Dr. Chen on their engagement.
PPS: Dr. Murthy’s grandmother was on-hand to see Vice President Biden officiate at the swearing-in-ceremony. What kind of nachas is that?
