SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The U.S. Deputy Surgeon General made a stop to the Hostess City on Friday.

Rear Admiral Scott F. Giberson served as the keynote speaker at the South University, Savannah School of Pharmacy hooding ceremony.

As Deputy Surgeon General, Gibberson is tasked with providing information to the public to help improve the health of individuals and the overall health of the nation.

"I'll think you'll see the pharmacist be much more involved in more than immunizations, but also in actual patient care," said Gibberson. "Maybe health screenings, maybe preventative measures, moving that health of the nation forward because they have access to these patients more frequently than any other healthcare professional."

The hooding ceremony was held at the International Trade and Convention Center on Hutchinson Island.
