From a Cultural Health point of view, the fact that African Americans are reengaging that part of society responsible for determining and managing economic resources in the country is a good thing. in 2009 I will be focused on Cultural Health and Physical Health as usual but I will be specializing like the big news folks. My special focus will me the National "Health" Care beat.

I think the best thing I can do for Cultural Health this year is get National "Health" Care passed in 2009. People who are worried about paying for their physical health do not have much time for Cultural Health. No one who is sick should be denied care because of money and Universal Sick Care in 2009 is a first step. I hope you will join me in the good fight.
