Citizens4Health:  About Us 

 

Citizens4Health seeks to be an organization of citizens intent on re-framing the public debate on the healthcare and other challenges facing our nation. At present we are a  self funded " labor of love". The eventual organization form (non for profit) will be defined by future needs and resources.  We have created a number of initiatives that invite citizens to imagine and engage in a process that brings about a sustainable healthcare system which provides excellent services that are affordable and accessible to all Americans. We focus the conversation on one, simple question:

 

How can we all, patients, doctors and health care institutions; citizens, non-for profit organizations and government; consumers and the "private" sector corporations; achieve effective solutions to the challenges facing the healthcare system? 

 

 

VISION
