New Article on Maine Tough Choices Focuses on Citizen Engagement

[via AmericaSpeaks Network News] AmericaSpeaks partnered in May 2005 with Maine Governor Baldacci to convene Maine Tough Choices, a 21st Century Town Meeting on health care policy that took place at two sites in Maine linked by teleconference technology. A new article about this process titled “Using Public Engagement to Inform the Future of Health Care in Maine: Talking About ‘Tough Choices’” recently appeared in the Winter 2005 issue of the Maine Policy Review. The article was written by Ronald E. Beard and Tish Tanski, Mainers who were key members of the Tough Choices project team.
