Howard Dean's "Prescription for Health Reform" - Join the Fight!
Howard Dean's "Prescription for Health Reform" outlines the best way to achieve a viable, quality health system. The book also spurs readers to action with an iPhone app that includes the book in electronic form and an activist tool kit to get readers involved in the fight for health reform.
The app allows users to:
Contact their member of congress. The application uses either the user’s current location or zip code to generate telephone numbers for the corresponding with Congressional representatives. Once the information is entered, the user can call the Member’s office right from their iPhone.
Sign the petition. Join more than 350,000 people in signing Governor Dean’s petition at www.standwithdrdean.com, calling on Congress to ensure that a public health insurance option is included in healthcare reform.
Involve friends. The application enables the user to forward an email to their contacts about the book, the healthcare reform debate, and how to get involved, as well as to post to their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Watch the video. The application also features two videos by Governor Dean, outlining what real healthcare reform looks like and thanking the reader for their activism.
“As technology continues to play a powerful role in bringing change here at home and around the world, this iPhone application literally puts the power to take action right in the palm of the user’s hand.” Governor Dean said. “Once again we are seeing the same forces mobilizing to prevent real reform. That’s why we need every American to get involved and make their voices heard.”
