FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two Native American groups are promoting the director of North Dakota State University's master of public health program to become the next U.S. surgeon general. 

The National Indian Health Board and the National Congress of American Indians included Donald Warne as one of four nominees for the post. The list has been presented to President Obama. 

Warne helped establish the master of public health program at NDSU. He serves as a consultant for American Indian Health Management and Policy and adviser for Great Plains Tribal Chairmen's Health Board. 

A native of Kyle, S.D., Warne is a member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe, based on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. 

Warne earned his medical degree from Stanford and a master's of public health from Harvard.
