I am going to be meeting with the head of The Center For Global Health and Medical Diplomacy(http://www.unf.edu/brooks/center/index.html) which is a Center through the college of health at the University of North Florida established to raise awareness of various health issues and to create committees which will make plans for change and improvement of healthcare throughout the FL area (to sum it up:) I am hoping to be able to share ideas that sdn members find important and either in need of changing or creating in healthcare in FL. The center deals with all types of healthcare issues from educational improvements to infrastructure development. So if anyone would like to voice an opinion of what needs to be done that would be of great help!! My goal is to present the head of this organization with a list of items that future and current doctors are interested in, and since this is the sdn I was hoping that you guys would offer great insight especially in the areas of educational improvements ( more funding for med schools, etc) Thanks to everyone who gives their opinion and I look forward to passing them on.

Also this thread will only be up for a few days and then it will be moved to other forums so that I get get as many opinions as possible, THANKS again!!

I'm sure they know this already, but they absolutely need to lower malpractice insurance rates already. It's ridiculous how much more it is in Florida compared to other states, and I hope a change happens before people stop practicing in Florida altogether (which has already happened to a certain degree).
