A mountain of experience behind new financial services firm

It’s one thing to understand the designation of baby boomer, Generation X and Generation Y — it’s all a matter of when someone was born. Typically, baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964; Gen X, between 1965 and 1980; and Gen Y Millennials, between 1980 and 1994.

But it’s an entirely different matter to understand what each of these individuals will need for their future retirement. After all, while some people are ready to retire, others are still in career mode, just starting families or taking care of their own aging parents. Still others are just trying to pay down huge student loans.

But when it comes to finances, Jamie Lima does understand — and is looking forward to offering assistance to members of each of the various generations from his new business in Ramona.

We are writing as a diverse group of women healthcare leaders who represent medicine, nursing, hospitals, health systems, research, policy and finance. Healthcare is our industry, our professional identity and our life’s work. The health of American families is the cornerstone of our collective mission, vision and values.

We are deeply troubled by the changes already made, as well as postponed but threatened cutbacks at the U.S. Postal Service.

Cutbacks to mail delivery could short-circuit healthcare’s ability to

    The Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) issued a bulletin Tuesday to health insurers prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

    Equality Michigan Executive Director Erin Knott said that equitable access to health care is essential while the state continues its ongoing battle with COVID-19.

    “Every person deserves fair and equal access to healthcare,” said in a statement. “In the middle of our current health crisis, it’s scary to think that people could be denied the medical care they need when they need it.
