The Virtual Office of the Surgeon General—www.surgeongeneral.gov
David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., the Surgeon General and the Assistant Secretary for Health, has taken a personal and user-friendly approach to the design of this Web site. He states, "I would most like to be remembered as the Surgeon General who listened to the American people and responded to what they said," and visitors are urged to use the e-mail feature to contact him. "My Library" provides a history of the Office of the Surgeon General and full-text versions of the office's most recent reports, including the latest report on the nation's mental health (see news story on page 264). "My Team" describes the U.S. Public Health Service and the Office of Public Health and Science. "A Tour of the Nation" shows how Dr. Satcher's national priorities are being carried out on the local level, with detailed descriptions of programs and accompanying videos. "For Kids" offers games, learning tools, poems, and pictures.
