Today President Obama is in Chicago to pitch his healthcare reform agenda to the American Medical Association. But the AMA represents only one-fourth of all physicians. Joining The Takeaway to explain the relationship Obama is hoping to forge with the medical community is Dr. Steffie Woolhandler. She talks about the different constituencies of doctors and how Obama is including or leaving out the voices of those outside the AMA.
Dr. Woolhander is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard and Co-Director of the Harvard Medical School General Internal Medicine Fellowship program. She is also a co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program.
