Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, December 13, 2011

I do so hope you are well, in good health! In my opinion, the shortfall we are facing in the Medical Care Arena. Is that the sheer numbers of population. Versus the available Medical Practitioners! Has caused so many shortfalls of effective time and fiduciary constraints. That many of our people are suffering without proper Medical Care. Why cannot we organize a Med-Teck Situation. Whereby, People who actually have Sincere Concern for People!Also of Good Character! Can recieve an Expedited course in Basic Diagnosis and Suggestions/(Limited Preschription writing ability(No Heavy Narchotics)Only Antibiotics and other preventative and condition alleviating Scripts, for Care. To alleviate the momentious work load faced by our present Highly Skilled Physicians. For Instance a short 2 Year Course of Rather Intense Dimensions. Military Schools have proven very effective. In what they can accomplish with Apt Students! Personally I prefer Air Force Or Navy Role Models. So a Similar Format Perhaps! They could then with time become highly accessable and cost effective. Also, i would suggest they be also Schooled in Basic, Life Saving Field Surgery. How many are being lost annually because no one was there. Available to provide effective, on the spot care? Looking to the future; Some care not because of population explosion! I believe we should care as much, if not more! We as a Species are on the brink of Colonizing other Worlds. If We Care about them all! The Challenges We Face, Are Not Insurmountable! Rather Perhaps, It may very well improve us as conscious beings. For the Challenge Faced and Accomplished! Just a Sugggestion, Sincerly, Dom Schwab.
