MONTGOMERY – Governor Bob Riley on Monday released the following statement about Dr. Regina Benjamin, President Obama’s nominee for surgeon general:

 “Dr. Benjamin’s contributions to furthering rural health care and to public service are extraordinary. Her dedication to the state of Alabama and to humanity is a model for doctors everywhere,” said Governor Bob Riley.

Governor Riley has previously appointed Dr. Benjamin to serve on the Alabama Rural Action Commission, the Black Belt Action Commission, and the Governor’s Commission on Efficiency, Consolidation, and Funding.
