Sanjay Gupta for Surgeon General?

Judging from recent reports including these from The Washington Post and Reuters, it appears that CNN's Sanjay Gupta is Barack Obama's top pick for Surgeon General.

To the best of my knowledge, Gupta is not known for his coverage of the condition, but he is a colleague of anchor Heidi Collins, spokesperson for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA).

This is another sign of hope that celiac disease might become part of the health and food agenda of the Obama administration.

I like your six-degrees-of-separation thinking. After a little more research on my own, I discovered Dr. Gupta participated in a NFCA Cooking Spree. You can read more about that here:
