Governor Douglas will Host Regional Forum on Health Reform

Montpelier, VT – At the request of President Barack Obama, Governor Jim Douglas will host one of five regional forums on health reform at the University of Vermont’s Davis Center on Tuesday, March 17. Governor Douglas will be joined by Governor Deval Partrick (D-MA), officials from the Obama Administration and other guests to discuss health care reform.

“This is a great opportunity for Vermont to showcase our groundbreaking efforts on health care reform to our region and the nation,” Governor Douglas said. “By focusing on prevention to lower cost and increasing access to health care for more residents, Vermont continues to lead the nation on this important issue,” he continued.

The regional forum on health reforms is part of a nationwide effort by President Obama to bring the health care discussion to all areas of the country. “Lowering the cost of health care for all Vermonters, indeed all Americans, is a goal I share with our partners in Washington and my fellow Governors throughout the country,” the Governor said.
