Citizens4Health seeks to be an organization of citizens intent on re-framing the public debate on healthcare and other challenges facing our nation. At present we are a self-funded " labor of love". The eventual organization form (not 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 that 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?
