WASHINGTON (RushPRNews) 01/13/09-Over the past few weeks, thousands of people in all fifty states have volunteered to participate in health care discussions in their communities. They invited their friends, neighbors and co-workers and met in cafes, living rooms and schools. You can see some of the photos they sent us here:

We asked these grassroots groups to report back to us, and our health care team is currently reviewing their ideas and proposed solutions.Watch Sen. Daschle’s journey in the video below, and let us know if you’ve had similar discussions in your own communities.

Health and Human Services Secretary-designate Tom Daschle—who has also been asked to become the Director of the White House Office of Health Reform—was able to travel to two of the discussions over the holidays. His first stop was hosted by the local fire department in Dublin, Indiana, a town of approximately 700 people. The next day he dropped in on a meeting at a wellness center in Southeast Washington, DC.
