We haven't heard much from him lately...now the Reverend is in healthcare research too...BD
KENNEWICK -- He's walked with Martin Luther King Junior, ran for the White House, and now he's an advocate for medical research.
Reverend Jesse Jackson was in the Tri Cities, Wednesday, trumpeting technology that some promise could help win a fight against cancer and HIV.
Jackson celebrated with the first company in the nation to produce medical isotopes, the Advanced Medical Isotope Corporation (AMIC).
Wednesday was the ribbon cutting for the building scientists will use.
"Insurance will not save your life, research will save your life," Reverend Jesse Jackson said.
