Doctors Can Be Everyday Heroes, Too

Oct 1, 2009

Dr. Kenneth P. Moritsugu, MD, MPH, FACPM

Dr. Kenneth P. Moritsugu, MD, MPH, FACPM is a very interesting man. He served as the Acting Surgeon General of the United States in 2006 and was made Chairman of the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute in October 2007. The Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute is designed to serve as a home for the diabetes family and a trusted place of diabetes learning that will inspire diabetes innovation, improved care, and better outcomes worldwide. Through the Institute, Johnson & Johnson is opening and operating state-of-the-art instructional facilities around the world to provide health professionals with education and training aimed at improving diabetes patients' outcomes by working at the community level.

Born in Hawaii, Dr. Moritsugu was an Admiral in the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service. Before serving as Acting Surgeon General in 2006, Dr. Moritsugu was the Deputy Surgeon General and the principal assistant and advisor to the U.S. Surgeon General for nearly ten years. In addition to completing residencies in internal medicine and in preventive medicine, Dr. Moritsugu holds Fellowships in the American College of Preventive Medicine, the Royal Society of Health, and the Royal Society of Medicine.

Dr. Moritsugu has type 1 diabetes, himself, and appreciates the many challenges facing patients-and diabetes professionals-today.
