ABSTRACT
The article reports that AASECT member Eli Coieman, director of the Human Sexuality and Behavioral Science program at the University of Minnesota, and Janet S. Hyde, chairwoman of psychology at the University of Wisconsin, submitted their draft of a "Surgeon General's Call to Action" in September 2000. However, no report was ever published. In mid-April, the group sent Surgeon General David Satcher a letter expressing concern that the call to action seemed to have been suppressed. Work on the "Call to Action" began in July 2000 when sex education experts met with Satcher at a retreat. After the election of U.S. President George W. Bush, Satcher was stripped of a staff of 200 people when he lost his post as assistant secretary of the U.S. Health and Human Services.
