Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A passenger on a Delta flight bound from Atlanta to Jackson received treatment from a doctor who happened to be on board. And happened also to be the Surgeon General of the United States. Jerome Adams, the U.S. Surgeon General, tweeted Wednesday afternoon that when an announcement was made asking if a doctor was on board to help with a medical emergency “why yes – yes there was.” and volunteered. No details of the nature of the emergency have been revealed but Adams added in his tweet that the patient was doing well and that he was glad to have been able to assist. Adams, who was appointed by President Trump to the position and was confirmed by the Senate last September, is to be at the University of Mississippi Medical Center to discuss opioid epidemic facing the state with hospital officials.
