Coalition’s Fall 2012 Meeting to Focus on Election, Health Care Politics

Aug. 20, 2012 – With the politics of healthcare front and center during the final days leading up to the

2012 Presidential election, the Coalition for Healthcare Communication’s Fall Member Meeting, to be held Sept. 18-19 in Washington, D.C., will feature speakers who know which candidates are running ahead and how they might change the Affordable Care

Act and other health policies once they are in office.

Jennifer Duffy, senior editor of the Cook Report, will kick off the meeting with an election preview, and two veteran health policy advisors – J.D. Kleinke from the American Enterprise Institute and Dr. Kavita Patel from the Brookings Institute – will discuss the future of Washington-directed healthcare programs. Highlights from the Coalition’s meeting will be included in future postings on the Coalition Web site.
