November 13, 2009

A commentary by James G. Hodge Jr. , the Lincoln Professor of Health Law and Ethics, and Director of the College of Law's Public Health Law and Policy, was broadcast on KJZZ on Nov. 12.

Hodge recorded his piece, "Remembering What Matters in National Health Care Reform," in which he advocated for the expansion of access, improvement of coverage, extension of benefits and shared costs.

"As Congress moves forward remember - what matters in national healthcare reform is the health of us all," he said. "No health system can deliver all necessary services - not even socialized health care. And no plan for meaningful reform is perfect. Mistakes will be made. But we can do better.
