National Health Blog Post Month – Day 5: Election Day!
Votes are in-you won! If you got elected President, what are the 3 changes you would make to healthcare?
- I would create a single payer, government based system of healthcare. The best healthcare coverage I ever had was Medicaid. Seniors love their Medicare. Our health should not be profit based.
- I would increase funding for genetic and stem cell research to improve disease prevention and treatment. Lipedema is a congenital condition for which the gene has yet to be identified.
- I would mandate all adults to have a Living Will, at age 18 require the advisement of rights and assistance in creating a Living Will of end of life wishes. Can be reviewed and changed as needed, complete renewal at retirement age.
I might not be able to enact those healthcare changes but I will continue to advocate for the passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act and the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act.
