Continuing to talk about children's health – here in Boston and on Capitol Hill


As many of you know, we have been committed to ensuring that health care reform guarantees that children have access to high quality care. I’m writing now from Washington, DC, as we personally deliver this message to the senators and congressmen representing all the New England states.

Lawrence McAndrews, the president and chief executive National Association of Children’s Hospitals and I wrote this editorial in response to and in support of the op ed by former Senators Tom Daschle and John Danforth.

When we return, I’ll let you know how the trip went and what the prospects look like for reform that will protect the health of the nation’s children.
