Standing Up For People in Need

Hi World,
In my research, I have looked up a note-worthy person, a Nachshon Draiman. Why is he important enough to blog about, you may ask? Well, it is because of his efforts to reform geriatric care.

Nachshon Draiman has dedicated 20 years of his life to improve long care facilities in Illinois. He saw a need for improvement in the care that the sick and elderly people were getting, and he was determined to make life better for senior citizens. To some, this may not be such a big deal, but to me, it is because you constantly hear stories in the media about elderly people being mistreated in hospitals and nursing homes and the like, so it is nice to see that someone like Nachshon Draiman has the interests of elderly people in mind.

Of course, Nachshon Draiman has done other things with his life, but the fact that he is taking a stand and being an advocate for people who cannot defend themselves-namely the sick and the elderly-is what stands out for me.
