How An HIV Outbreak Changed Trump’s Surgeon General Nominee

The White House said Trump nominated Dr. Jerome Adams to serve as the nation’s chief doctor.
(Newser) – President Trump nominated Indiana’s health commissioner to serve as the next US surgeon general on Thursday, selecting an anesthesiologist who promoted needle exchange programs while serving under Vice President Mike Pence.
Adams was appointed by Pence, then Indiana’s governor, to serve as the state’s health commissioner in 2014 and was reappointed earlier this year by Gov.
As Indiana’s health commissioner, Adams oversaw the needle exchange effort, which Pence reluctantly supported in 2015 after more than 180 HIV cases in a rural southern Indiana county were blamed on needle-sharing among people injecting a liquefied painkiller.
Adams has been a prominent backer of allowing counties to start needle exchange programs aimed at stemming the spread of diseases among intravenous drug users as the state struggles with opioid abuse, the AP reports.
