Doctors’ Group Expands Uninsured Campaign
The American Medical Association on Tuesday announced the nationwide expansion of a campaign that seeks to focus the health care debate in the presidential election on the issue of the uninsured, The Hill reports.
The multimillion-dollar "Voice for the Uninsured" campaign, which includes advertisements and outreach efforts, last year targeted early presidential caucus and primary states -- Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina -- and Washington, D.C.
This week, television ads for the campaign began to air on cable networks, and print ads appeared in U.S. News & World Report. As the presidential election nears, print ads for the campaign will appear in other national magazines, and online ads will appear on MySpace and Facebook.
AMA will not endorse a specific presidential candidate and likely will not comment on any of their health care proposals (Young, The Hill, 1/9).
