Making It in America – Day 3

When was the last time people spent 4 days together – on cruise, vacation to Hawaii,
We know we have asked so much on working day and school day to listen to make it in America. It is a lot to ask.
But because the message is so urgent and so important that people need to be aware and be part of this make it in America movement because our lives depend on us.
We did our best to bring top of the line speakers willing to come down form San Francisco ,Hollywood, up from Mexico and bring investors from 9,000 miles away to attend. But like the first time for anything, There is reluctance…anything for the first time needs room for improvement.
But as media and with new technology and with the driving force of make it in America in mind, we will take the information recorded and videotaped here to homes, schools and any associations who need to be aware of this message.
For the people who are with us from the beginning to the end, they all bombarded with new information that will change new direction of their business and their lives. (Rosalynn Carmen on Facebook 11-22-14)

Excellent talk on the migration of the HIV virus to many parts of the world. I was glad to renew contact with Dr. Flossie Wong-Staal after many years seeing her at the Asian Heritage Awards in 2007 when she was the keynote speaker on the topic of HIV.

Dr Robert Gish spoke on Hepatitis B and C in the US and the world, especially in Asia and the Philippines.

Binh Tran presented the results of screening events carried by the Asian Pacific Health Foundation in San Diego, to see if people at risk for getting hepatitis B are detected at an early stage to prevent harmful effects to the liver, cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and possibly cancer.

Make It in America – Day 2

Dear all,

The Make It In America, second day is about advantages of doing business in and from “America’s Finest City” includes access to a moderate-wage maquiladora system and the best disposable income market in the world, cheap transportation costs and a creative, talented work force. So, why outsource? Distinguished group of panelists this morning will share some insights into why it makes sense not only to be here but to do what it takes to be here to capitalize on the California and San Diego brand. (by Rosalynn Carmen, President of the Asian Heritage Society, on FaceBook page).

In the afternoon, Dean Emeritus Palmer Taylor from the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences spoke on the impact of the school on the growth of the pharmaco-medical and biotechnology fields in San Diego.
Please see the pictures taken with Dr. Taylor and the ensuing panel on the Importance of Innovation and what it takes for success in America with Dr. Tess Mauricio, Chris Phan, Tom Hom and Ray Wong.
