National Experts in Cleveland to Discuss Presidential Healthcare Policy Issues

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Share

If the presidential campaign is any indication, the nation's healthcare system will likely be a top issue facing the next president. In a swing state like Ohio, it's something voters will be paying attention to as well. Later this morning a group of national experts will discuss the candidates positions on issues of healthcare policy -- ideastream's Gretchen Cuda has more.

CUDA: National experts from Washington DC and Cleveland are putting their heads together to discuss the challenges --and possible solutions-- to what many consider a national healthcare crisis. The forum is co-sponsored by the Cleveland Clinic and the Brookings Institution, and will discuss the current and future state of healthcare policy. Michael O'Hanlon, is a senior fellow at Brookings. He says the goal is to get voters to start thinking about the issues now.

O'HANLON: I'd like to see people walk away with 2 or 3 clear ideas in their head of different mechanisms by which you might address the problem of insurance coverage- of growing cost, and therefore helping people be more informed voters as November approaches.

CUDA: The discussion which begins at 8:30 a.m. in the conference center of the Intercontinental Hotel is free and open to public. It will also be webcast live from the Brookings website, brookings-dot-edu. Gretchen Cuda, 90.3.
