VOL. 1, NO.1
The Consumer Coalition's Newsletter for Health Advocates

Introducing...The Quality Connection

Welcome to the first issue of The Quality Connection, the newsletter of the Consumer Coalition for Quality Health Care. We hope you will find it so helpful that you anxiously await its arrival — and pass each issue on to friends and colleagues.

Every day, advocates are on the front lines trying to convince lawmakers, CEOs and government bureaucrats to do the right thing for consumers. This first issue is dedicated to you, in honor of your efforts and accomplishments so far.

We’ll be bringing you “news you can use:”

This newsletter will be a collaborative effort. We need your help to keep in touch with state campaigns and to keep our finger on the pulse of the grassroots movement demanding quality in health care. Please call, fax or send us updates on your activities and other events in your state.

Together, we can help shape the new health care system by reminding the powers that be, over and over again, that health care is about people not profit!

The Quality Connection is a good way for all of us to keep in touch and draw strength and power from each other. Let’s stay connected! Please feel free to contact the Consumer Coalition anytime.
