Bakersfield mother calls for reform of Medical Board ahead of testimony at oversight hearing

A Bakersfield mother whose pregnant daughter died because of alleged medical negligence called for reform of the California Medical Board during a press conference Thursday, ahead of testimony she's expected to give in front of a state Senate committee set to  review the board's standing.

“I am angry that my daughter lost her life, and my grandson, to a failed and broken system,” said mother Tracy Dominguez, who lost her daughter Demi and her unborn grandson. “She had plans for her future she worked hard to achieve. She died one month before her college graduation. … It was not supposed to be like this.”
