Surgeon General promotes health to Navajo youth
Acting Surgeon General Dr. Steven Gaison visited the Navajo Nation on Wednesday.

Gaison helped dedicate a wellness center at the Tse' Bit' Ai Middle School in Shiprock, New Mexico. He also promoted the Department of Health and Human Services' "Healthy Youth for a Healthy Future" initiative to the Navajo youth.

The students gave Gaison a lesson of their own, beating him at the Dance Dance Revolution game. "I've tried it before but it seems like only people under the age of 20 can do it," Gaison told The Farmington Daily Times.
