During this holiday season, President-elect Obama and Senator Tom Daschle, Secretary-designate for Health and Human Services, have asked people across the United States to sign up to lead a Health Care Community Discussion in their home, community center, or even a local coffee shop, anytime until December 31st. The Obama-Biden Transition Project are hoping to engage all Americans in a conversation about the priorities for health care reform.

Public Health Institute's Dialogue4Health is pleased to be hosting our own voluntary Health Care Community Discussion so that PHI employees, partners and stakeholders have an opportunity to discuss and share their priorities, ideas, and input. The recommendations and outcomes from the discussion will be shared to ensure that the national conversation about health care reform can be informed by the evidence base and research of our projects and the expertise of the Public Health Institute.
