Dr. F at Health Care Rally

I have been asked to appear and speak at a rally on 9/12 in Thousand Oaks. The main theme is against a government take over of health care and indiscriminate spending. So much has been said already pro and con that there is little I can add. My hope is that I can say a few words about cost savings in maternity care using the midwifery model. And back it up by giving a real face to the issue from one with expertise who is actually doing the work. I am hoping that on one subject left and right can agree. That being that the ultimate decisions in any health care proposal need to belong to the patient. On another note, my daughter and I will take a moment on the morning of 9/11 to pause and remember the tragedy of 8 years ago. God bless the memory of those lost on that day.
