New, Improved HCFA Blog & Citizens Health Care Working Group Hearing

July 28, 2005

OK, OK. It's taken us longer than it should. Today we unveil our new, improved blogsite. The best part of it -- you can now respond to my postings and have the rest of the world see your comments. Yeah, so maybe we were a little timid in our original version -- it's been a 4 month trial to see if we could keep up the pace of blogging on a regular basis.

So let us know your opinions and reactions to any daily posting. And let us know your reactions to the blog overall. You can post them for anyone to see, or you can send me an email at your leisure -- mcdonough@hcfama.org

Meanwhile, we mentioned in an earlier blog about the Citizens Health Care Working Group, established by federal law through the efforts of Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden. Their charge is to come up with a comprehensive reform plan for the US health care system (perhaps fix global climate change while they're at it). They are coming to Boston on August 16 and 17 to hold a public hearing. Click here for information (such as it is) on this session, to be held at Harvard Medical School. I've heard Sen. Wyden talk with great excitement about this effort. We'll have to wait and see...
