Idaho Media Spread the Word about Health Care Reform

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
July 2, 2012

Our Idaho newspapers and television news crews did a great job last week in educating the state's residents about the Supreme Court's decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

We provided perspective with a Statesman Reader's View contribution on Sunday, and contributed to reporting at KMTV in Twin Falls, KTVB in Boise,  Statesman breaking news stories, the Idaho Press-Tribune, and the Times-News. And we kept St. Luke's employees and friends up to date through my blog as implications of the decision emerged; more than 1,800 visitors checked on the blog the day the ruling was released to get the latest.

Thank you for your interest; it's your participation that means all the difference as we work to transform health care!
