  1. Love the post about the 100 most influential aging white people in healthcare. No wonder this industry is moving so fast.

  2. Seahawkdoc, must have had the braille addition. 14 were at least people of color. And just for argument, 26 were women.
    Sorry, that’s not the reason health care is moving “so fast”
