Surgeon General Regina Benjamin has announced that she plans to step down from her post, which she has held since 2009.

Deputy Surgeon General Boris Lushniak will serve as acting surgeon general while the search takes place to fill the post, said Dori Salcido, spokeswoman for Health and Human Services.

“I loved serving as #SGReginaBenjamin, putting prevention in all we do. I leave next month confident we created a more healthy & fit nation,” Benjamin posted Thursday on her Twitter account.

“The surgeon general announced today that she will be stepping down as surgeon general next month,” Salcido said in a statement. “She has served as America’s doctor since 2009 and has impacted the health and lives of Americans across the country. We are grateful for her leadership and service.”
