In today’s world, its common to read headlines about medical issues being resolved in court. Healthcare controversies such as legalizing marijuana, reproductive rights, stem cell research or vaccine controversies have crossed a line between personal medicine and politics, leaving the court system to rely on factual, medical evidence in order to try to define policies or resolve disputes.
In order for legal courts to understand the severity of medical issues, whether they happen to an individual or within the political realm, it is imperative that a knowledgeable person explain confusing medical terminology or other extenuating circumstances. Leaving medical decisions and rights up to a judge may seem counter-intuitive and it can be reassuring to have a qualified person to interpret medical information. Whether you are fighting for political change, or for your own family, the more information you can provide could mean the difference between a good or bad outcome for healthcare issues that matter most.
