Talking Health: Political Promises

What lies ahead for health reform? Will President-elect Obama bring insurance coverage to more Americans despite the country's other financial problems?

The most recent "Talking Health" webcast for journalists—which took place on Friday, Nov. 21, at noon Eastern--featured two experts who have been following the politics of health reform for a long time: Karen Davis, president of The Commonwealth Fund, and Sheila P. Burke, a lecturer in public policy at Harvard University. They offered their judgments on what we can expect. Two journalist panelists, Julie Rovner, health policy correspondent for NPR, and Marilyn Werber Serafini, health care and welfare reporter for National Journal, made suggestions for covering the story for the next year both nationally and locally.
