MT. LAUREL, N.J., April 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Society of Transplantation's President-Elect, Joren Madsen, MD, DPhil, participated in a White House Regional Forum on Health Care Reform that was held on the campus of North Carolina A & T State University on March 31, 2009. Hosted by North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue, the invitation-only event was the fourth of five regional forums that is being held across the country.

In early March, President Obama invited a bipartisan group of lawmakers, physicians, health care executives, business leaders, advocates and others to the White House for a forum on health care reform. The goal of the White House's health care reform process is to identify affordable and accessible health care solutions that benefit all Americans. Following the forum in early March, President Obama announced that the White House would team up with governors from across the country to host regional meetings and continue the discussion. In addition to North Carolina, forums have been held in Michigan, Vermont, Iowa and California.

Commenting on the event Madsen noted, "Health care reform is one of our country's most pressing issues. I commend President Obama for bringing this issue to the forefront and eliciting feedback from a wide range of participants."
