Abstract: 

With funding from the Maine Health Access Foundation, Muskie School faculty and staff worked with the Maine Development Foundation and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine to develop and deliver a day-long educational forum for the Maine legislature on health care on January 26, 2007. In addition to a keynote address by Dr. Karen Davis from the Commonwealth Fund, breakout sessions with accompanying Issue Briefs were held on a variety of topics including Medicaid, rural health, workforce, health information technology, state health reform, Maine?s Dirigo health reform initiative, behavioral health, public health, and Maine?s aging population. All Issue Briefs and presentations from the Forum are available for viewing and download from the Muskie School?s website at http://muskie.usm maine.edu
