Dr. Adams, a Maryland native, has bachelor's degrees in both biochemistry and psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, a master of public health degree from the University of California at Berkeley, and a medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine.

"Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer", Delta said in a statement.

The passenger eventually regained consciousness, but HHS staff said Adams ultimately determined it was necessary to go back to the gate and have the person evaluated at the hospital. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Adams is expected to speak about the public health advisory Thursday, April 5, at the National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit in Atlanta.

A Delta flight was getting ready to take off from the runway when passengers were made aware of a medical emergency. "Why yes - yes there was".

Delta responded to Adams tweet, thanking him for his service: "Hello, Wow!"
