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.
