Moving the debate forward

On June 10, the center co-sponsored “Minnesota Innovations:

Moving the National Debate on Health Care Reform Forward,” with

the AARP, the Academic Health Center and School of Nursing, the

Mayo Center for Health Policy, and Twin Cities Public Television.

This community forum featured panels of local and national experts

who answered prerecorded questions from ordinary Minnesotans

and direct questions from moderator Cathy Wurzer, the host

of Morning Edition on Minnesota Public Radio. The forum will be

broadcast on Twin Cities Public Television in September and will

also be available as a webcast.

Center director Joanne Disch welcomed participants and noted

that Minnesotans want to live in a country where—to paraphrase

Garrison Keillor—“families are insured, the vulnerable are safe,

and children are healthy.” Panelists included John Rother, national

AARP executive vice president for policy and strategy; Hugh Smith,

professor of internal medicine and cardiology at the Mayo Clinic;

Representative Tom Huntley, DFL-Duluth; Senator Linda Berglin,

DFL-Minneapolis; Cal Ludeman, commissioner of the Minnesota

Department of Human Services; Sanne Magnan, commissioner of

the Minnesota Department of Health; Randy Moore, CEO of

American TeleCare; and School of Nursing dean Connie Delaney.
