Hey there!

I have some exciting news to share with you today. In 2024, medical aid in dying (MAID) is becoming a prominent health care issue with numerous states considering evidence-based legislation. This is a huge step forward in providing compassionate end-of-life care for patients.

In other news, a heartwarming story about a gene therapy for an Afghan refugee family’s infant will be fully covered by Texas Medicaid. This demonstrates a positive step towards providing life-saving treatments to those in need, regardless of their background.

Additionally, there’s a lot of movement in the pharmacy industry, with pharmacies aiming to expand their health care services. This could lead to more accessible and comprehensive care for patients, which is always a positive development.

On the legal front, Johnson & Johnson is facing a lawsuit over how it handled its employees’ drug benefits. This is a reminder that holding companies accountable for their actions can lead to positive changes in the healthcare industry.

Lastly, a study found that a major purge of Tennessee’s Medicaid rolls almost 20 years ago led to a big increase in evictions. This highlights the importance of ensuring access to healthcare and stable housing for all individuals.

Overall, these stories show both the challenges and progress in the healthcare industry. It’s a reminder that we’re constantly moving forward and striving to make positive changes in the lives of patients.

Stay positive and keep spreading good vibes!


Stay Well!
