Multi Assn Secretary Lanier to Sen Rules/ Volunteers in Medicine

On March 5th a hearing will be held for confirmation of Governor Brown's appointment of David Lanier as Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development. Small Business California will be testifying in support of Mr. Lanier at the Rules Committee. Please see the link below for the letter of support signed by 19 associations. Thank you to all the Association that agreed to sign.

RE: SUPPORT of David Lanier as Secretary – Labor and Workforce Development Agency

 As I think you all know, I am Vice Chair of Volunteers in Medicine. This organization sets up free clinics around the country using retired physicians, dentists, nurses and lay volunteers. We have 96 clinics in 29 states, one of which is Clinic by the Bay in SF, which I co-founded. I am excited to tell you VIM has signed an agreement with Teva Pharmaceuticals to be their partner in promoting and expanding VIM in the United States. For those that don’t know Teva, they are a huge firm in Israel and one of the largest generic drug companies in the world. They will be making this announcement at their conference this weekend in Palm Springs. VIM will be presenting at the conference.

In March,  I will be meeting with the Consulate General of Israel, Andy David  in San Francisco to discuss this this partnership.
