American Health Policy Network (AHPN)

John Goodman hosted a meeting of the AHPN featuring CEOs and other corporate decision-makers interested in health policy.  We were pleased that Senators Bob Bennett (R-UT) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) joined us for the meeting.  The meeting was a chance for the Senators to hear from Dr. Goodman and other AHPN participants about health care reform.  The Senators also provided a valuable perspective about their goals for bipartisan reform, specifically about legislation they've sponsored, the Healthy Americans Act .  Representative Jim Cooper (D-TN) also came to the AHPN meeting, but had to leave shortly after arriving because of unexpected votes called on the House floor.  Rep. Cooper is a cosponsor of the House version of the Health Americans Act.
