Nashville-based group leads charge to reform healthcare

The Tennessean, October 6, 2008
Veteran Nashville healthcare executive and entrepreneur R. Clayton McWhorter says he's been around long enough to see little meaningful healthcare reform following election-year promises of presidential candidates. With this year's presidential contest approaching, McWhorter decided to set up a nonprofit group to give young people a voice and inspire them toward an ongoing role in finding potential solutions. SHOUTAmerica is now hosting 100 student government leaders from around the country in Nashville to discuss healthcare issues. With Nashville as a headquarters city to more than 300 healthcare companies, some say many decisions are made there that shape the industry's future.
