As you are probably well aware, Chick Koop, my old Children's Hospital associate as Surgeon-in-Chief for many years, has
now been cleared for nomination by the President to the Office of Surgeon General of the United States. This is a very happy
time for all of us at Children's, and I know you join us in our pleasure.
Anything you can do to further Chick's confirmation by the Senate will be vastly appreciated by all of us.
