Report Shows That Making Americans Part of The Conversation Is Critical To Advancing Health Care Reform
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As Congress breaks for its August recess with polls pointing to a decline in public support for health reform efforts, new research shows that getting Americans more involved in the debate is essential to moving the reform needle.

The report offers specific insight for congressional and other leaders to help build constituent support while back in their home states.
