Panel shares healthcare goals at University of Miami forum

Miami Herald, October 23, 2008
University of Miami President Donna Shalala told 100 South Florida healthcare leaders that the key to making major changes was getting a consensus. Shalala, the former leader of Health and Human Services in the Clinton administration, noted the country had never "taken a giant leap" in any large social change without first getting agreement that there was a problem and then getting agreement on what the solution should be. The seven panelists who followed her during a discussion at UM's Wellness Center agreed that the system needed huge reforms, but there was no consensus about what should be done.
