Our clos­est neigh­bor, Canada, as well as our tra­di­tional ally France, both suf­fered pop­u­lar up­ris­ings against at­tempts to im­pose re­straints against fos­sil fu­els. More than sig­nal­ing an un­rest by their cit­i­zens against govern­ment’s ef­forts to curb car­bon emis­sions, it shows the lack of lead­er­ship of the global leader in all things pro­gres­sive, the United States. Our coun­try’s with­drawal from the Paris Ac­cord left a vac­uum of lead­er­ship glob­ally and gave le­git­i­macy to those who op­pose the use of re­new­able sources of en­ergy. If we fail as a global spokesper­son to as­sume lead­er­ship against cli­mate change, we will all suf­fer the con­se­quences of global warm­ing.

Broward Health’s mis­sion is to pro­vide qual­ity health care to the peo­ple they serve and sup­port the needs of all physi­cians and em­ploy­ees. On Wednes­day, Dec. 12, the North Broward Hos­pi­tal Dis­trict Board of Com­mis­sion­ers named act­ing CEO Gino San­to­rio to the po­si­tion per­ma­nently. Through San­to­rio’s lead­er­ship role, he has im­pacted the sta­bil­ity of Broward Health, over­seen ap­prox­i­mately $1.2 bil­lion in op­er­at­ing rev­enue and more than 62,00 in­pa­tient ad­mis­sions. San­to­rio is a great as­set to the Broward Health com­mu­nity and fo­cuses pri­mar­ily on the qual­ity of care to the com­mu­nity needs.
