  1. Lawson seems like a very nice and intelligent woman, but as a regular attendee of the Medical Board meetings she’s not very effective. She hardly ever speaks and it appears she’s done nothing to make change at the board to help consumers be safer. We’ve been sending her evidence of the Medical Board’s failures and she’s never responded and never chosen to speak about any of the topics at any meeting. She’s just accepted the political status quo and doesn’t ruffle any feathers even though she knows there’s wrongdoings going on.

    Judge Katherine Feinstein left the board before her term ended when she decided her moral compass was more important than playing the Medical Board’s political games with consumer’s health.
