Medicare – A National Health Insurance Fund
The history of Medicare goes back to President Teddy Roosevelt. In 1912, his presidential campaign included a national health insurance plan. The idea of a national health plan didn’t gain steam until 1945..
🧵 (thread)

Pres. Harry S Truman championed the idea of a national health care fund in 1945. He wanted national health insurance for all Americans and fought to pass a bill but was unsuccessful. It took another 20 years before Medicare became a reality.


John F. Kennedy
After studies showed that 56% of Americans over the age of 65 were not covered by health insurance, JFK made an unsuccessful push for a national healthcare plan.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Very excited to have 2 new papers in press today in Lancet Digital Health, alongside an editorial from the journal highlighting our work.

I am immensely proud of the work we have done here and honestly think this is the most important work I have been involved in to date 🥳

#Medical #AI has a problem. Preclinical testing, including regulatory testing, does not accurately predict the risks that AI models pose once they are deployed in clinics.

I've written about this before in my blog, for example in:…

In this work we:

1) describe a step by step method for algorithmic auditing in health, building on the 🔥 work by Raji et al

2) audit a high accuracy model we developed @theAIML for hip fracture dx, ID-ing several serious risks that were not detected by standard testing.

#Cannabis Strains: Can you tell the difference between Sativa & Indica?

A thread... Cannabis Sativa is probably the most common form of cannabis
Probably before now, you are aware that 3 forms of cannabis strains exist; Sativa, Indica, and hybrid. Each form differs in the levels of its constituents, however, a hybrid is a mixture of two or strains.
As far as your health is concerned, knowing what to use to obtain a desired #Medical result is quite important. Therefore, you should work towards how you can correctly identify these strains and save the budtender some time.

I want to start out by saying, you folks are in a tough position, being PUBLIC SERVANTS of WE the People. I would like to believe that you truly have the best interest of our children and the community in mind, but you are factually acting outside of your delegated authority...
by practicing medicine, imposing unlawful medical interventions, and by simulating legal process.
That being said, our forefathers put together one of the most powerful and amazing documents in our history. The #constitution, which was drafted to protect individual rights!
They did this in an effort to make sure we didn’t end up under #tyranny again, and yet, here we are with individuals and Agencies operating outside of both their delegated authority and outside of the law. I’d bet my LIFE (emphasis added), if any one of them were alive today...

Today @GeneticAll_UK is launching a new report, ‘Good Diagnosis:Improving the experiences of #diagnosis for people living with rare conditions’.

Read the full report…
Over a third of people living with a #RareCondition
will wait for more than five years to obtain a
definitive #diagnosis, often receiving a number of
#misdiagnoses along the way

The ‘diagnostic odyssey’ is a term used to describe the time taken between a patient first developing #symptoms and receiving a correct #MedicalDiagnosis. This can be a long and eventful journey.

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.

How do we know if we are acting responsibly when we are offering ‘information’? What information are we offering? What if that information is on risk for #selfharm & #suicide? As a part of our daily #dutyofcare part of the #safeguarding process?

I urge the health minister @mla_sudhakar to have an elaborated discussion in the assembly session before proposing any amendment to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Act 1994.

Many media houses have reported that the state government has sent a note to the Principal Secretary of Medical department regarding a necessary amendment to the act which grants the state government the final authority over the utilization of the funds.

The #RGUHS has funds over ₹1500 Cr which should be used solely for the purpose of improvement of medical education services at government medical colleges to improve the quality of education.
