As a small business owner, Ms. Sole has realized that the current health care system is unsustainable and needs to be redesigned. She co-chairs the Taskforce on Healthcare for Governor Schwarzenegger’s Conference on Small Business & Entrepreneurship and is leading the ongoing working group that is part of the Office of the Small Business Advocate. Just this year she was invited to attend the Regional White House Conference on Healthcare hosted by Governors Schwarzenegger and Gregoire of CA and WA respectively. She maintains a blog on healthcare at www.physyko.net, has been published in local papers and internet ezines and is in the process of completing a book on the subject.
We need to embrace a counter force to the expanding menu of health care services being sold to the American consumer.
