FREE Workshop on Health Care and Insurance for the Arts Community
This is fairly appropriate for today considering that I had to cut my road trip short due to sickness. Seriously, yesterday was one of the sickest days of my adult life. It was a beautiful day in Los Angeles, and while my friends were at a rooftop pool, I was shivering with the chills on a couch in a hotel room. But hey, at least I’m feeling a bit better now!
Truthfully, I was barely able to eat more than a cup of chicken soup yesterday and subsequently I don’t really have enough energy right now to think of witty and snarky shit to say. So I’m gonna cut and paste from the email that was sent to me. Regardless, I highly recommend that all you uninsured and underinsured people check this workshop out.
