President Obama Discusses Healthcare Reform at Town Hall Meeting
Last weekend the Obama Administration announced on its White House Blog that the President would take his healthcare reform message directly to the American people during an online town hall meeting on Wednesday, July 1, at 1:15 p.m. EDT. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the Administration’s proposals, which will likely greatly impact the American healthcare system, including the health information technology sector. Prior to the meeting, individuals can submit their thoughts concerning the President’s proposals by watching a special message from the President here and posting their questions in the form of a 20- to 30-second video. Twitter users can ask questions with this hashtag: #WHHCQ or head to Facebook and ask your question there. Although the Obama Administration has not released many details about the town hall meeting, information on how to view it will likely be posted at either the main White House website or the Administration’s Facebook page.
