Obama's traveling forum on healthcare visits Vermont

Boston Globe, March 18, 2009

The White House, seeking to engender political support for a healthcare overhaul later this year, brought its traveling health policy forum to Vermont on Tuesday. Governor Jim Douglas of Vermont, a Republican, and Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, a Democrat, co-hosted a forum with about 400 people on the frontlines of healthcare about how to make sweeping changes to the existing system. The doctors, patients, business people, and government officials repeatedly emphasized similar themes: the need to prevent and manage chronic disease better, attract more primary care doctors, simplify bureaucracy, and find a way to get everyone access to treatment at an affordable price.
