Survey Addresses Key Issues: Health Care and the Economy

The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD), along with two of the nation's leading political pollsters, will release the findings of a recent survey evaluating the attitudes of men and women voters about health care and the 2008 election.

In light of the recent economic downturn, the survey specifically looked at whether health care remains a central issue for female voters. The survey also addressed the issue of health care costs and proposed solutions.

For millions of American women, health care is a top priority, but due to other recent news -- most notably, the financial crisis -- the issue has not received much attention from elected officials or the media. As a key voting demographic, many political experts suggest that women will be a decisive factor influencing the outcome of the 2008 election.

Please join us for a call with the pollsters, as well as PFCD's Executive Director, Ken Thorpe, to dissect the numbers and analyze what the results mean for candidates at all levels of government.
