A U.S. Congressman is urging new graduates to help heal our healthcare system.

This morning District 17 Representative Chet Edwards delivered the commencement address to 87graduates of Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health.

Graduates received their masters or doctoral degrees at the Bush Presidential Library. Eighteen of them completed their degrees through the school's distance education program.

As he made his address, Congressman Edwards encouraged the graduates to make a positive change on the current state of health care.

"One of you perhaps some number of you here could be the future leader or leaders who will help us improve our state's and nation's system of healthcare delivery," Edwards said.

The Health Science Center's College of Medicine conferred degrees to more graduates at a second commencement exercise on Saturday afternoon at Rudder Auditorium.
