On Thursday, September 19 PICO held their second annual health care conference – Promoting Good Care: Innovation and Organizing in Health Care. Keynote speakers included Ezra Klein of the Washington Post and MSNBC, and Dr. Ken Coburn of Health Quality Partners. A round of applause to PICO and CCOP for putting on this successful event.

Following the conference Ezra Klein posted this article. Ezra clearly has an understanding of the issue:

Also be sure to check out this article he released.

Ezra was kind enough to with the Coalition staff.
