Issue: Doc Wants To Help But Hands Are Tied

Issue: Retired doctor can't afford to volunteer: Physician Norman Leffler would like to help out at Dirne Health Care Center, but malpractice insurance would cost $10,000/Tom Greene, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: He wants to work at the nonprofit Dirne Health Care Center -- which currently has a waiting list of about 400 to 500 patients, but it could cost him a small fortune just to work. Leffler said he transferred his Florida license to an Idaho license at a cost of about $1,000.

Question: Any ideas how to solve this problem?
