Yesterday, I was invited to attend a Regional White House Forum on Health Reform in Greensboro, NC.  This was the fourth of five forums being held across the US (the others being Michigan, Vermont, Iowa, and California).  The forums represent the next step following the Obama administration’s call last December asking Americans to host and participate in Health Care Community Discussions.  Over 9,000 people got involved and submitted 3,276 group reports, and over 30,000 participant surveys were completed.  The community discussion findings are available online, and if you are interested in what happened in these 5 regional forums, you can see transcripts, slides, and videos on http://healthreform.gov/whitehouseforums.html.  On Monday, the White House also released a report covering this topic as well; it is worth a read.
