Shout-out to Doctors for America’s “Patients over Politics” tour

My colleagues and friends at Doctors for America are on a Patients over Politics tour from the Republican convention in Tampa, Florida to the Democratic convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. They will be holding events, providing some health screenings, and educating people about the importance of health reform.  If you’re at either convention or along the way, stop by. Here’s the schedule of events. I’ll be there 9/3 in Charlotte. This is a pretty inspiring group of people who are working for an important cause.

  1. Great, if unintentional, symbolism that they’re driving from the Republicans to the Democrats. Gets my vote! I’ll have to stop by one of the Atlanta events.

    1. Lucky duck; you never see the “Obama gutted work for welfare” ads which I am unlucky enough to see. Every time I see one I have to send $25 to Obama (a pledge I am not strictly bound to obey, but cannot resist making).
