I am convinced that stem cell research means we Baby Boomers will be the last generation to have to watch our parents die of Alzheimer's or watch our children die prematurely of sickle cell disease. Proposition 71 set this research in motion. Now we have to make sure this research keeps moving forward.
This month is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. I propose that we raise awareness of just how horrible, destructive and expensive this disease is and that we deploy the attention and resources needed to beat Alzheimer's before it beats us.

Our lives matter, our bodies matter, and our sexualities and genders matter. They matter to us, and they should matter to our providers to inform and improve care.

He's a reproductive physiologist who has been teaching about, and doing research on, birth control in his predominately Catholic country of Chile since the early 1960s, at some peril to his career. His name is Horacio Croxatto.
When we use words like 'Thank you for your service,' and 'We are a grateful nation,' we must connect those words with actions. For it is not our words but our actions that are the true reflection of our values. If this nation is going to honor its commitment to care for those who defend our freedom then we must ensure that ALL veterans, including those who struggle, are given the treatment they have earned.
