Most of our regular readers are familiar with George Chidi. He’s an activist, and was briefly one who was a part of the Occupy Atlanta movement. Yet, he ultimately left it because he didn’t see a path to actual results there. George, unlike most that fall under the Occupy label, isn’t exactly a non-conformist. He has an MBA. He understands processes. And he understands how to condense a message into something that people can relate to.
For the past day, George has been at Grady Hospital with his mom. He’s been essentially live-blogging the episode on his Facebook page. I’m out of town this week for the day job, and have only had a chance for a brief glimpse. You should make time too when you can. He’s breaking the experience down, asking tough questions, and in some cases getting answers from high level personnel from the Hospital.
If you want to understand how health care is being delivered for a large portion of Metro Atlanta’s population, George is helping us out.
Best wishes to his mother on her recovery as well.
