Sanders to Appoint Dr. Kay Chandler as Arkansas Surgeon General

    Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that she will appoint Dr. Kay Chandler to serve as the Arkansas Surgeon General.

    “I am pleased to announce that Dr. Kay Chandler will serve as Arkansas’ next Surgeon General, bringing strong leadership and years of medical expertise to the Department of Health,” Sanders said. “Dr. Chandler is a skilled, qualified OB-GYN who has spent decades serving women across Arkansas. I promised that when I was elected governor, Arkansas would not have mask mandates or vaccine mandates and we would not shut down churches and schools because we believe in personal freedom and responsibility. I look forward to working together to protect the health, well-being, and individual freedoms of Arkansans.”

    “I am incredibly honored to be given this opportunity by Governor Sanders to serve the people of the great state of Arkansas as their Surgeon General. I was inspired when I heard our Governor say in her inaugural address that even though she did not want to dismiss the significance of being the first woman to serve as governor of Arkansas, she ran to make Arkansas first in everything. I consider it a tremendous privilege to be called on to serve in Governor Sanders’ administration and I am committed to working alongside her and the people of Arkansas towards achieving this – especially as related to the health and wellness of all Arkansans.”
