Benjamin, the 18th Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service (PHS), for an informational interview to discuss her fellowship at DCEG; career opportunities with the PHS Commissioned Corps; and the National Prevention Strategy, a comprehensive plan developed by representatives from 17 federal agencies that will help increase the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life.
