Jerome Adams, M.D.

Anesthesiologist, Senior Public Health and Community Outreach Advisor

As the 20th U.S. Surgeon General and a member of the President’s Coronavirus task force, Dr. Adams has been at the forefront of America’s most pressing health challenges. A regular communicator via tv, radio, and in print, Dr. Adams is an expert not just in the science, but also in communicating the science to the lay public, and making it relevant to various audiences.

Dr. Adams is a licensed anesthesiologist with a master’s degree in public health, and was the head of the Indiana State Deparment of Health prior to becoming Surgeon General. In the health commissioner role he led Indiana’s response to Ebola, Zika, and HIV crises, and helped convince the state legislature and Governor to legalize syringe service programs in the state.

In addition to his recent COVID work, Dr. Adams has partnered with and assisted organizations as they navigate the opioid epidemic, maternal health, rising rates of chronic disease, the impacts of rising suicide rates in our Nation, and how businesses can become better stewards and stakeholders in promoting community health
