Welcome

We're on a mission to improve health and healthcare:

  1. Restoring Doctor-Patient Relationship (and Restoring Trust in MDs)
  2. Resolving Profits Over Patients
  3. Reducing Chronic Disease Burden

And we need YOUR help!!!

If this resonates with you, then we're happy to see you. Welcome to "my Healthy Community". The problems contributing to health and social issues may seem too big to solve. They may be for each of us, but together we can find solutions by working toward common goals. Many people and grassroots organizations are gathering together.

All are important. All are part of a much bigger solution. Together we are improving individual and population health, with a side effect of making healthcare systems sustainable.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has" ~ Margaret Mead
