"This is a rare opportunity for the MPT and RLTV audiences to share in a dialogue between thought leaders on what is undoubtedly one of the most important issues facing our country. This series presents an insight into both how our healthcare system really works and what needs to be done to fix it. Dr. Brody does an exceptional job at challenging conventional wisdom in these interviews," said Elliot Jacobson, VP of programming and production, RLTV.

"The Federal government is in paralysis because of partisanship and special interest groups that fund their campaigns. And, they would not do anything to upset the tobacco industry where this century we're going to kill a billion people in this world because of smoking," stated Mayor Michael Bloomberg during his Healthcare '08 interview.

"This is an opportunity to provide compelling commentary on one of the most important issues facing aging Americans. RLTV has asked hard questions of some of today's top leaders and their answers are of interest to our viewers," said Eric Eggleton, SVP, MPT.
