Health care reform, in terms of lowering costs while increasing delivery to a large population of uninsured patients, appears to be a priority for both major political parties. If we are to have any influence on this process, it is self-evident that as physicians and citizens, we should make our views clearly known to all involved parties. The question arises whether we should do so as a solitary advocacy body or whether it is proper and timely to actively educate, lobby, and enlist our patients as allies in this process.
