Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C. : President to Name Surgeon General

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

President Clinton is expected to name Henry Foster Jr. as surgeon general, using the doctor’s expertise to begin a national campaign to reduce teen-age pregnancy. Foster is a former acting head of Meharry Medical College, a predominantly black school in Nashville, Tenn. He would replace Joycelyn Elders, an outspoken Arkansas doctor who was fired in December after suggesting that children could be taught about masturbation.
