This is my June, 2017 Now Update Based on a movement created by Derek Sivers
Greetings from Washington, DC (of course) and welcome to my third now update, June, 2017.
- I attended my 5th Capital TransPride (@CapitalTransPride) and enjoyed it immensely. The photograph in this update is of the doctors, nurses, therapists, researchers, health leaders of Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States (@KPMidAtlantic) giving Gavin Grimm (@GavinGrimmVA) a hug of support. In May, Kaiser Permanente signed the friend of the court brief supporting Gavin. See: Because Life is Amazing and We Can: My 5th Capital TransPride)
- I figured out email newsletter generation and I’m pleased with the results so far. Feel free to Subscribe to them to see for yourself. As part of this, I purged the email lists attached to this blog, which I also feel good about.
- I finished reading Stumbling on Happiness, review coming soon
- I snuck in When We Rise, by Cleve Jones, posting review soon as well
- Finishing Tools of Titans – back in rotation at my local library 🙂
- Reading Mistreated by Robert Pearl, MD. I feel if people want to know the solution to what ails health care in this country, it’s best to hear from the experience of the leaders who’ve made the most progress. It’s clear that Kasier Permanente and the Permanente Medical Groups have made the most progress. Robert Pearl, MD (@RobertPearlMD) is the CEO of The Permanente Medical Group, The Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (@MAPermanente), and the Co-CEO of The Permanente Federation (@PermanenteDocs)
- Working on a special emoji project for a friend…
- Getting ready for the rest of LGBTQ Pride Month, including Washington, DC’s Equality March 2017 (@EqualityMarch17). I recently met the organizers and I’m impressed with the potential of the return to the roots of the most successful civil rights movements of our time.
Is there anything I should be doing that I’m not? Feel free to let me know in the comments.
