Washington, D.C. is full of politicians and lobbyists. These people are good at smoozing. That’s why they are politicians and lobbyists, but this week there’s another group of people coming to town. They are good at taking care of patients, and I can’t wait to meet them. Healthcare bloggers are coming to Washington, D.C.!

Better Health is sponsoring a discussion about health care reform at the National Press Club on July 17th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Dr. Val Jones will serve as host. Keynote speakers for the event are Congressman Paul Ryan, Media Personality Rea Blakey, and Robert Goldberg, Ph.D., co-founder and vice president of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest (CMPI).

My Blog Mother, Kim McAllister, from Emergiblog, along with other way cool A List bloggers are serving as panelists during the discussion. I’ll be sitting out in the audience, tweeting the event. Follow my tweets. I’ll keep you posted on what’s going on if you can’t attend the event. Promise!
