If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, comrades, we should all be feeling pretty flattered right now.

Before we get started, I’d like to acknowledge that we are on occupied territory of the Cherokee Nation.
Our clinics are pretty special places. No matter where in the world we are located they are places where people from many different backgrounds, socio-economic classes, and

I just had a bad experience on Facebook, and it made me realize some things.

POCA Fest is over for now but I’m still floating in the POCA Over-Flow- the abundant heart-felt, head expanding, energetic surge that comes from getting together with all of you. POCA Fest is what I want the world to look like: groups of friends, old and new,
