Working Locally Thinking Nationally

First's the link to the news story from yesterday, for those of you outside of the Louisville area.
WDRB Fox 41 News Story

It's been an interesting past 24 hours. In the time since the story aired, I've had several donations to the Stanford Trip Fund, but more importantly I've been contacted by several people stating that they will be keeping an eye on this trip and look forward to my report when I get back. I'm hoping that I can take the many lessons learned from Medicine X and apply them at both the local and national level.

For the last year, we have been looking at getting the prosthetic parity laws passed at a state level, and while this would be great for the thousands of amputees here in Kentucky, it does very little for amputees nationally...the solution; band together as a group. GO NATIONAL!!! There are several groups that are looking into pushing this prosthetic parity (fairness) law on a congressional stage. With the looming Obamacare changes (like them or not, I won't go into that now), it seems very likely that an addendum could be added into the language, or a whole new law all together.

Ah well...that's a fight for another day...but will be fought none the less.

Until next time...If you have the ability please consider donating to the airfare fund above. Every little bit helps
