What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

Researching Medical Malpractice

Short Description Of Project

I am trying to research some medical issues, particularly elder-care & medical malpractice. Both of my parents died due to medical malpractice & because they were elderly, the lawyers I talked to said they had lived their normal lifespan. I am hoping to find information or an association that is doing some research in the number of malpractice deaths among the aged & why the elderly are so poorly valued. I am also trying to find out if there is an agency, outside of the government, that monitors malpractice & advocates for senior care, so this does not happen to other seniors.

In addition, to I am trying to research my family tree. All those things your parents share with you when your growing up are info that you wish you had paid closer attention to & written down. Finally, I hope to get back in the workforce & being computer savvy will help in a future job search.
