This letter was sent by 45 health care experts to Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Rangel, Henry Waxman, and George Miller asking Congress to pass reform legislation.

Among the signatories are several North Carolinians including James Tulsky, the director of the Duke University Center for Palliative Care, Jonathan Oberlander, associate professor of Social Medicine and Health Policy & Management at UNC, and Mark Hall, professor of law at Wake Forest University.
