So, This Happened Today!

So, this happened today!

I had the pleasure of meeting the Acting U.S. Surgeon General, Rear Adm. Boris D. Lushniak. He was a speaker at The Health Beyond Health Care Conference held at The Washington Post. Health and Wellness are the spirits by which I live and breathe, so its no strange occurrence that I had the opportunity to meet Adm. Lushniak. I wish I would have had the chance to pick his brain regarding details and specifics about the many health challenges millions of us are facing now and in the future. I am sure his revelations would have been even more of an inspiration beyond this fortunate encounter. The small tidbits he disclosed, and witnessing his thoughts on the future of heath nationally and globally, showed me that the high politics of National Healthcare will soon be at the forefront of our political arena beyond the impasse and gridlock of the current congressional debates.

He was a very passionate speaker and incredibly nice to chat with.  This was definitely a highlight of my week.
