The forum will take place at 10:30am PDT at The California Endowment in Los Angeles. In addition to the Los Angeles forum, local forums will take place simultaneously in San Diego, Oakland and Clovis, California and will connect with the Los Angeles forum via satellite. In keeping with the Obama administration’s commitment to an open, inclusive, and transparent process for health reform, the forum will bring together a diverse group of people to voice their concerns and ideas on reforming our health care system. The Los Angeles forum will be moderated by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California and Governor Christine Gregoire of Washington. Melody Barnes, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, will represent the Obama administration. Forum participants will include doctors, patients, providers, insurers, policy experts and health care advocates of all kinds – both Democrats and Republicans – who will discuss the urgent need to provide high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans and to curb skyrocketing health care costs that are draining our federal and state budgets, devastating families and small businesses, and undermining our long-term economic prosperity. The event will begin with a video message recorded by the President, a summary of the findings from the Health Care Community Discussions that took place in December, and an overview of the discussion that took place at the White House Forum on Health Reform in March. The forum will take place on Monday, April 6th at 10:30am PDT: LOS ANGELES: Yosemite Hall The California Endowment 1000 North Alameda Street Los Angeles, CA
