In this podcast, we talk with Dr. Douglas Kamerow, Chief Scientist for Health, Social and Economics Research at RTI International. Doug, who’s also a professor of clinical family medicine at Georgetown University in Washington, was part of a group of national prevention experts who prepared policy papers for Partnership for Prevention on how to incorporate disease prevention and health promotion into the health reform legislation being developed by Congress. In one of those papers, he offered an analysis of how we can modernize Medicare’s prevention policies. With the health reform debate about to reach full throttle, we discuss those recommendations.
