I have never included politics in this blog and don't intend to start now. But I wanted to share that I took an hour out of my day and exercised my right to vote as a United States Citizen. It felt good.
As someone who has dedicated his professional life to caring for people and their ills, I search for ways to decrease suffering and improve quality of life. As our world population grows, it is becoming increasingly clear that government policies affect individual health and the global health of the planet. Federal and state regulations influence the amount of toxins in the air, ground, and sea, degree of climate change, as well as the availability and quality of health insurance.
Whatever your political ideology, I dare to say that we all wish for healthier, longer, more productive, and happier lives. Please make your voice heard and vote!
