I remember his anti-smoking campaign in the 80s. Before he came along, most people had never even heard of the Surgeon General, but now that post is better known because of him.

This man did so much to raise the profile of AIDS and promote serious action in an indifferent country. RIP Dr Koop.

I have some threads going in H&W as Koop also tried to get Prolotherapy covered by insurance as it worked in his life and wanted others to know of it too.
