(1/9) I was unable to share my thoughts on #HLMUHC #UNGA on day of, but will do so with tweetorial below & my @nytimes commentary "Reversal in Health Coverage": nytimes.com/2019/09/24/opi…

I also want to thank everyone for warm words of support: my mother is doing better day by day.
(2/9) It’s been a landmark event as #HLMUHC moved mountains with political attention for #Health4All #UHC and the adoption of the Political Declaration. As per my op-ed for @ghn_news, reduced financial commitment but inclusion of #SurgeryUHC now apparent:

(3/9) Major congratulations for the important #ChildHealth event by @Smiletrain et al.: “quality surgical care is a driver & outcome of development” #SurgeryUHC

1.7 BILLION CHILDREN live without access to surgery. #UNGA #UNGA74, what about that future? qz.com/1674518/theres…

@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX Let's see, Van ... We're presently #5 in teen birth rate (per @HHSGov), & the state ed #abstinenceonly policy seems tailor-made to make us #1 there. In fact, the stats say almost one-in-five of US births to girls <15 were right here in Texas. #winning 1/
@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX @HHSGov In your quest for first, Van, you'll be glad to know we're #1 already for #uninsured people AND #1 when it comes to least #HealthcareAccess (incl.

@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX @HHSGov Wanna be the worst place for #children, Van? Texas is almost there! According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation #KidsCount assessment, we're the 3rd-worst for family and community (#47/50) & 9th-worst for #childhealth. Isn't that exciting? /3
