I can't get the links to go live, and I want to watch. Help me doctor!
Never mind. I healed myself and went to YouTube to find the speech on my own. Fascinating---I'm glad I was able to listen as I am currently studying changing paradigms in medicine and I liked very much how you personalized your speech. Medicine is incredibly intimate. It could become even more intimate in the future if what I am hoping for becomes a reality. Thank you.
