PRESS ROOM - Remaking American Medicine Press Kit - Introduction

This kit includes descriptions for all four programs, stories about Champions of Change featured in the series, quality related statistics, Q&A's with the Exec. Producer and series host, photos and more. These publicity materials can be easily customized for use with the media, in newsletters and magazines, on Web sites and in formal presentations.

Remaking American Medicine™…Health Care for the 21st Century explores the quality crisis and the innovative solutions being undertaken by providers, patients and their families to transform the care provided by the institutions we all depend on. The four one-hour programs were broadcast on PBS on October 5, 12, 19 and 26 at 10 p.m. (check local listings).
