On December 30th, 2008, the Health Sciences Library hosted a Health Care Community Discussion in response to a call from the Obama Transition Team’s request to hold a conversation about health care reform. The moderators submitted a report of the discussion to the Transition Team web site. You can read an abridged version of the report from the library’s web site along with the results of a brief survey.
The national results are now available at Healthreform.gov. Americans expressed serious concerns regarding health care in the new report and web site released by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report, Americans Speak on Health Reform: Report on Health Care Community Discussions, summarizes comments from the thousands of Americans who hosted and participated in the discussions across the country and highlights the need for immediate action to reform health care.
