Changing healthcare can include the small changes we each make every day, to monumental changes and transformations. We have created a team of motivated organizations and individuals, to change health from 'THE INSIDE, OUT', and we want you to be a part of this process!  Paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln, would you like to see a solution that is 'of the people, by the people and for the people'? Then, join the discussion around Person Centered Health, and share your ideas.

Join the next session: a WebEx Webinar, on March 11th at 1:00 pm EST to talk about the ideas we all have, and the actions we are all implementing, to improve health care. We have started to gather the resources, and now we need some of your energy, to help catalyze a true transformation in health care.
