The role of the California Surgeon General was created in 2019 by Governor Gavin Newsom to marshal the insights and energy of medical professionals, scientists, public health experts, public servants, and everyday Californians to drive solutions to our most pressing public health challenges. Dr. Diana E. Ramos is a well-recognized public health leader, and as California’s Surgeon General, serves as a leading spokesperson on health disparities, social determinants of health, preconception/interconception health, preterm birth, contraception and quality improvement in health.
“My hope for every Californian is a healthier, more equitable future. That is my commitment, and the Office of the California Surgeon General’s commitment to you. I look forward to serving you.”
