Dysfunctional Politics: Bridging the Partisan Gap
When Dr. Richard Carmona was sworn into office as US Surgeon General in 2002 under George W. Bush's administration, on-looking Senate leaders voiced their approval and sang his praises. Ten years later, when he ran for Arizona's Senate seat on a Democratic ballot, those same senators turned around and attacked his character and policies - for supposedly being on the other side of the political spectrum.
In this presentation, speaker Richard Carmona speaks out against Washington's paralyzing partisanship, in which politicians' desire to score political points has become more important than solving problems, creating jobs, or providing for those in need. An inspirational leader dedicated to his mission of helping Americans, Carmona urges today's politicians to put partisan politics aside and do what they were elected to do: serve our nation.
Beyond the Battlefield: Providing Veterans with Continuous Support
As medicine and the kind of combat US troops engage in have changed, so have the injuries. More troops are surviving tragic battlefield injuries than at any time in history, including multiple loss of limbs, loss of genitalia, and other life changing trauma. Innumerable veterans are suffering from diverse mental health problems such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and brain injuries, and there has been a significant rise in the number of suicides. While troops have access to some of the most advanced trauma care on the battlefield, there is little to no sustained outreach once they've come home.
A disabled veteran and former combat medic, speaker Richard Carmona knows the struggles service men and women go through in the field and while transitioning into civilian life. In this presentation, he champions our nation's moral obligation to provide sustained care to veterans once they have transitioned into civilian life.
