This white paper would not have been possible without the inspiration, enthusiasm, encouragement, and guidance of Kristen E.B. Montez, Esq., the Director of Legal and Regulatory Services of Satori World Medical in San Diego, CA. It was Kristen who answered my call on LinkedIn.com for assistance with a topic to write for my Health Law class. Her knowledge and experience in the area of medical tourism as a published writer on the subject was not only very valuable, but also very much appreciated. Her desire to assist me in writing it, and in suggesting that I get it published, is something that I did not expect, nor imagined when I placed the online posting. She is a remarkable individual, and it is my pleasure to have connected and collaborated with her on this project. My thanks to her for putting up with my initial reservations, and my rather wordy writing style.
