Our eternal dream remains to see all nurses and doctors nationwide given the opportunity to provide the world’s best medical care to any human being; regardless of race, gender, sexuality and socioeconomic status. 

What's Making The People Of L.A. Hopeful?
As the grandson of a Mexican immigrant and war hero, Mayor Garcetti therefore understands the pressure President Trump is placing on Los Angeles. While President Trump promises a wall between California and Mexico, Mayor Garcetti focuses on bringing people together by fostering safer neighborhoods for all.

In an edition of ABC Los Angeles’ “Ask the Mayor“, the Mayor cited a new study that found that foreign-born residents contributed more than $230 billion to Los Angeles County in 2014 alone. He said that the figure incorporated both legal and undocumented immigrants. Undocumented immigrants have served the country just as much as any other American has.

Los Angeles faces a serious homeless problem. 2016 marked the second year in a row that Los Angeles reported the largest number of chronically homeless people in the entire country. According to a recent report by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, nearly 13,000 people in Los Angeles are homeless. 95% of them are unsheltered – that is, they live outdoors, in cars, tents and encampments. The city also tops the national register for the highest number of unaccompanied homeless youth as well as homeless veterans. Needless to say, the homeless cost tax payers a lot of money each year.

Many non-military medical industry experts appointed to recommend ways to improve veterans’ health services proposed a complete shutdown of all VA medical centers and outpatient services. They advised that VA’s 9 million enrollees should get their medical care in the private sector. The VA backlashed by pointing out that the advisors stood to gain financially from the privatization of the VA. They also contended that community providers were not adequately equipped to provide the complex care needed for severely injured veterans.

The Healthcare industry in the United States is huge with revenue in excess of 3 Trillion dollars. With the creation of more jobs, Obamacare has had a favorable impact on the overall revenue and will continue to do so. Studies show that healthcare expenditure rose 5.3 percent in 2014, a whopping $9,523 per person, accounting for 17.5 percent of the total gross domestic product (GDP).
For the truly dauntless among undocumented residents, who are admitted to, survive, and complete medical school and their clinical rotations, one last hurdle presents itself. Fresh out of medical school, a doctor must obtain a state professional license in order to get work in the first place. Laws affecting the ability for undocumented immigrants to get professional licenses of any sort extend to medical licenses as well.

"He has the sheen of a politician...
… But not much of the oiliness. Where other politicians walk around your policy questions, Garcetti answers them. In detail.“
"Mayor Garcetti announced on Twitter
…that he is “definitely not a hipster.” Which is obviously a total hipster thing to say.“
