Our Health Is On The Line!

Future Health?

Future Health?

In just over a month, the United States of America chooses a new leader. One wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the other supports providing insurance to those who had none. One said they heard terrible things about the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the other will support funding research. One denies climate change and the other has concern about the global impact that it does, and will have on our planet.

As someone with Parkinson’s disease, I want a leader who will move science ahead, take a hard look at research for all illnesses, and  expedite funding for promising studies. This really hasn’t been a topic that has been thoroughly discussed by either candidate.

Our health is on the line and the decision of our next President will play a huge role in our  future health, on so many levels.
