Progress Notes is a blog by members of Doctors for America on issues in health reform.
Doctors for America is a national movement of physicians and medical students fighting for a system in which every American has equal access to quality healthcare.
We envision a fair, effective and affordable healthcare system -- one fundamentally transformed and guided by the core values of doctors and their patients.
Doctors are critical to rebuilding our healthcare system and can be leaders in that process when we utilize our collective voice. As physicians and medical students on the front lines of our health system, we seek to empower one another to make change possible. We amplify our voices -- anchored in our experiences with patients -- to improve the health care system for everyone.
Our members are practicing and retired physicians and medical students with diverse backgrounds spanning the geographic and medical spectrums - from rural communities in Texas to academic centers in New York; from primary care physicians in New Mexico to sub-specialists in Boston. By working with our fellow healthcare providers, our patients and other leaders to identify and advocate for improvements, DFA members are working for better healthcare for every American.
