Lots of events coming up this week - from my friend Kate:

I plan to attend this event in Sunday at Golden Gate Park:
It's organized by Angela Lin. She is totally awesome. She and her husband and a few others just launched this website, independent of OFA and any organization, really:
There's a ton going on, as you know... another happy hour at Madrone tomorrow (Friday) night that I might go to. From 6-8.
I'm thinking of organizing a tabling in the Castro or near me next weekend.
And as if more motivation was needed, scary events in Tampa earlier tonight... ugh.

...if you need more details about these events, I'll put you in touch with Kate

interesting Q&A with Dean Shortell, Dean of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, on whether or not we can cut costs while expanding the availability of health care. He focuses on the disconnect between costs and outcomes and calls for a robust comparison of treatment options
