a better NOW...

This Is What I Can Do For Now.

This I Believe:

- I believe that there is more to health than healthcare.

- I believe that the ‘there’s a pill for everything’ mentality is wrong.

- I believe that all people should have equal access to medicine.

- I believe we all have the power to change the world.

- I believe that we all have a global responsibility.

- I believe that all people are equal.

- I believe that the third world is just a different world, not a lesser one.

- I believe that we need to partner with grassroots organizations already existing in   developing nations and really listen to what the people actually need instead of     just assuming we know what they need.

- I believe that prevention is the best medicine.

- I believe that medicine is more than diagnostics and treatment.

- I believe that real healthcare is the ability to connect with people and to do our best to show them we care.

- I believe that healthcare should not be a business.  I believe that US healthcare has become that.

- I believe that a simple smile and laughter can be the best medicine.

- I believe that no child should die of malnutrition.

- I believe no one should die from vaccine preventable diseases because they did not have access to the vaccines.

- I believe that Big Pharma has a responsibility that it does not meet- backordered/discontinued medications is unacceptable.

- I believe that all the healthcare in the world will not change anything if people still live in unsanitary conditions or extreme poverty.

- I believe that there is so much work to do.

- I believe that change will not happen over night.

- I believe that sometimes all you need is a little bit of hope.

- I believe that there is a hope for a better NOW.
