I am pleased to announce that I recently joined the Medicare NewsGroup Advisory Board. Medicare NewsGroup is an independent resource for Medicare news, policy and legislation. Medicare NewsGroup provides journalists with information and materials to help them produce more accurate and comprehensive stories about Medicare.
In my role on the Advisory Board, I will work with three well-respected health care experts to inform the media on Medicare reform. Other members of the Board include Stuart H. Altman, Ph.D., Robert A. Berenson, M.D., and Gail R. Wilensky, Ph.D., all of whom are well versed on Medicare policy and implementation. You can learn more about their background and experience here.
It is my hope that this Advisory Board will help journalists communicate more effectively about a complex program that impacts so many people in our country. I look forward to working with this group to provide accurate and easy-to-understand information about Medicare for journalists to share with their readers.
