Mike Stobbe on the decline of the Surgeon General

The post of U.S. surgeon general has remained vacant for nearly a year. An appointment by President Obama is mired in Washington politics. So it raises the question: Can we do without a surgeon general? And, does the role of the nation’s top doctor still matter? Associated Press medical reporter Mike Stobbe’s new book, Surgeon General’s Warning, argues that it does. In this podcast, he discusses the book and the decline of the surgeon general’s office.
