    Vicky our Senator Flake gave an Op-Ed https://www.flake.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/op-eds?ID=49A54FB8-3CDE-4B90-8F69-4804A4A0DD9A “This means that, as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), CRNAs are not required to be supervised by a physician – including an anesthesiologist – when providing anesthesia to patients.” This guy, “Flake”, is on the idea that veterans in the hospital shouldn’t be subjected to “lengthy wait times” to be seen by an MD Anesthesiologist, but by a NURSE anesthetist. He gives an emotionally laden anecdote for an example, Sen. Flake: ” I support changes to the system that improve efficiency and timeliness with an ‘all-hands-on-deck’ approach so veterans like my father don’t have to wait for the care they earned with their service.” Oh brother. Yeah, give our VETERANS nurses instead of licensed MD anesthesiologists, a specialty that requires a BS of four years before even entering medical school, then after med school a residency- this is at a minimum 8 years of higher learning at a university. Nurse anesthetist? “Admission to most nurse anesthetist programs requires at least a year of professional nursing experience in an acute care setting—preferably surgery or critical care. During graduate school, CRNAs complete about 2,500 hours of clinical training and administer approximately 850 anesthetics” Oh, how nice. My sister got her RN in two years of Nursing School. Who would you choose to be the one person responsible for keeping you alive during surgery? a nurse? or a licensed MD with anesthesiology specialty? And Sessions dumped the Latin requirement for med school (thanks to Vicky for pointing that out in another writing)

    By the way, speaking of DNA that “23andme” website that advertises how you can find out what country your grandmother came from, or whether your grandfather was Italian or Greek (who wouldn’t know?? unless one is adopted… ) shares it’s DNA collected from customers https://mediacenter.23andme.com/blog/23andme-and-ancestry-com-partner-to-extend-access-to-genetic-ancestry-expertise/ and: https://www.fastcompany.com/3040356/what-23andme-is-doing-with-all-that-dna 23andme partnered with Genentech in a $60mil deal.

    Here is the clincher : ““The long game here is not to make money selling kits, although the kits are essential to get the base level data,” Patrick Chung, a 23andMe board member, told Fast Company last year. “Once you have the data, [the company] does actually become the Google of personalized health care.” , its data-analysis initiative is earning support from other U.S. government agencies. In July, the company received a $1.4 million grant from the National Institute of Health to help expand its genotype database.” Good gravy.
