It was an interesting presentation. I look forward to considering them for my brain care sometime in the next decade or half. Just sayin'.
The Alvord center will be an interesting institution to watch. From what I listened to this evening, I'm trepidacious, and curious. It could be exciting, but during the Q&A portion of the evening not much was answered. The main point driven home was the need for funding/donations. Want, want, want. Why is it that the cancer takes, and many doctors take, and then, after that, they still want more. I'm all for spending, but be smart. And, without clear plans for the future, no step-by-step goals showing how things are going to happen, ideas can turn into expensive pipe-dreams, worse yet, they can become poorly executed, misleading, tools/practices/instutions. I mean, seriously, the head guy Dr Eric Holland has no game-plan to implement his tumor database, he's just dangling it out there. We can all dangle things and ask for money, but it's important to have all the facts. The doctor was incredibly rude when he was asked for a timeline or plan. It was awkward. The super nice guy asking for money was, oddly, a jerk when it came to accountability. Anyway, I won't go into it all right here. Still a great night. Still something to watch.
