Nashvillians work to bring healthcare to forefront of election
The Tennessean, July 30, 2008
Efforts centered in Nashville are attempting to shine a spotlight on what some see as the biggest financial uncertainty facing the nation: healthcare. The latest effort in the city involves plans by healthcare entrepreneur Clayton McWhorter to launch SHOUTAmerica, a nonprofit group that aims to raise a younger generation's awareness about the need for healthcare reform. Nashville has much riding on the winning candidate's approach to tackling the nation's healthcare problems because hospitals are one of the city's key industries. The hospitals could benefit from more Americans getting health coverage under Obama's plan, while disease management and wellness companies in the city could benefit from McCain's focus on consumer choice, experts say.
