Developed by the University of Texas and conducted by Zogby International, the poll will be presented by S. Ward Casscells, distinguished professor of medicine and public health and vice president for public policy at the University of Texas Health Science Center and former assistant secretary of defense for health. He will be joined by John Zogby, president of Zogby International, to explore the results of the largest recent survey of American attitudes toward health care reform legislation.

The survey was designed to establish the clearest and most up-to-date understanding of how Americans feel about their health, the future of health care and legislative options for health care reform.

In addition to Casscells and Zogby, panelists will include Harvard University health care economist David Cutler; Dr. Gail Wilensky, former head of CMS (Medicare, Medicaid); Dr. Denis Cortese, CEO of the Mayo Clinic; as well as Dr. Harvey Fineberg, president and chair of the Institute of Medicine. Leaders from the American Medical Association, America's Health Insurance Plans, other trade associations and UT-Houston President Larry Kaiser also will attend.

The Casscells/Zogby poll reached 3862 respondents and asked more than 100 questions. Zogby also will comment on the political implications of the results.
