The raging debate of the day is ‘Healthcare reform’. Let’s take a minute to remember why we went into this in the first place.
I believe that most everyone who went into medicine was at the beginning, driven by a sincere desire to make life better for others. Let’s cleave to that.
We know, for sure, that those without coverage will suffer, and die this year.
We know that nearly a third of bankruptcies have a medical cost link.
Let us invoke our higher order thinking, and with the confidence of the power of our calling, insist that the benefits of our art be extended to all Americans.
Will our concern for the suffering be beaten by loud negative voices of fear?
