I read the article from the link above, and I'm disgusted with it. I'm a nurse, and having worked at a very busy family practice in Springdale, I have first hand experience treating the Marshalese. I don't know what their culture is like, as far as their homeland. But I will say, they don't do anything to take care of themselves. They'll come see us for major medical issues, like diabetes, heart attacks, etc. We'll give them usually 3 months of medications, and want them to return for follow up. They MAY come back they may not. The majority of the times, the ones that do return, never picked up their medications. You ask them why, and they say "I don't know". It's general fact, you can not help those that won't help themselves.
THAT SAYING HAS BEEN SAID IN THE U.S SINCE IT WAS FIRST DISCOVERED, SO ARE WE MARSHALLESE PEOPLE ANY DIFFRENT FROM YOU .THAT SAYING HASNT YET REACHED THE SHORES OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS, SO LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING NURSE,IM A DOCTOR MY MOM IS MARSHALLESE AND MY DAD IS AMERICAN I BEEN A DOCTOR FOR 11 YRS AT UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER IN TUCSON AZ AND BELEIVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS WE ARE NO DIFFRENT FROM AMERICAN FOLKS....I TREAT AMERICANS EVERYDAY THAT DONT TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES AND WHEN I SHEDULE FOR FOLLOW UP, SOME NEVER COME BACK, SOME DONT EVEN PICK UP THEIR MEDS, AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO JUST COME IN WHEN THIER VERY ILL.. SO HERE IS WHAT I SAY (YOU CANNOT HELP THOSE WHO CANT HELP THEMSELVES.
