Today will be my final posting as the ITUP Policy Director, as I will be heading to UC Davis for medical school in the Fall. I would like to thank everyone who has helped make this blog a success, and I hope that our readers will continue to find it a useful resource in the all-important next few years. Clifford Sarkin, our new Policy Director, will be taking over the blog effective June 1, and I am confident that he will bring it to new heights.
This past year has been one that we in the health policy and advocacy world will remember as a fulfilling and defining victory, though we recognize that there is still much work to be done in cementing reform and bringing coverage to the uninsured. Though I may be leaving my full-time role in policy, I intend to continue to be a vocal advocate for effective implementation of health reform, with the addition of a new medical/clinical perspective. I hope to include the UC Davis community in this effort, while taking advantage of being Sacramento-based (and maybe finding time for a guest blog or two). Please contact the ITUP office if you need my personal contact info, and thank you again for your continued support of Insure the Uninsured Project.
