WASHINGTON (RushPRNews) 01/13/09-Over the past few weeks, thousands of people in all fifty states have volunteered to participate in health care discussions in their communities. They invited their friends, neighbors and co-workers and met in cafes, living rooms and schools. You can see some of the photos they sent us here:
We asked these grassroots groups to report back to us, and our health care team is currently reviewing their ideas and proposed solutions.Watch Sen. Daschleâ€™s journey in the video below, and let us know if youâ€™ve had similar discussions in your own communities.
Health and Human Services Secretary-designate Tom Daschleâ€”who has also been asked to become the Director of the White House Office of Health Reformâ€”was able to travel to two of the discussions over the holidays. His first stop was hosted by the local fire department in Dublin, Indiana, a town of approximately 700 people. The next day he dropped in on a meeting at a wellness center in Southeast Washington, DC.
