Eight organizations will join in a briefing on May 10 about redeeming the concept of health care reform -- as ever more government powers, regulations, spending, agencies, taxes and intervention in medical practice. We will instead discuss a new focus on what government must stop doing that will allow real reform to occur in a way that allows for better and more affordable care while increasing the individual rights and choice of both patients and physicians.
Speakers from the following organizations are currently scheduled to participate:
Abigail Alliance for Better Access to Developmental Drugs
Frank Burroughs, President and Founder
"Better Access to Promising Developmental Drugs and Vaccines"
Americans for Free Choice in Medicine
Mark A. Hurt, M.D., Director
