  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”

  3. Gordon the point is no one on that list is going hungry or looking to shake things up. The fact that you even bring up 14% only strengthens what I said.
