BALTIMORE, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Retirement Living TV (RLTV) and Maryland Public Television (MPT) are working together to bring a compelling dialogue on the healthcare system in America to the Maryland, Washington, Northern Virginia and Southern Delaware television markets through RLTV's original series, Healthcare '08: Search for Solutions. The nation's leading political and public leaders present their position on the present and future state of healthcare through this series of in-depth conversations with Bill Brody, MD, President of Johns Hopkins University. Healthcare '08 is produced in association with Johns Hopkins University and the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC).

"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.

Healthcare '08: Search for Solution featured interview subjects include Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City; Bill Novelli, CEO, AARP; John Erickson, CEO, Erickson Retirement Communities; Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and Elias A. Zerhouni, MD, Director, National Institute of Health. During the series, Dr. William Brody, president of Johns Hopkins University interviews the participants and respected journalists and talents including Judy Woodruff, Lea Thompson, Felicia Taylor and Dr. Alexis Abramson act as moderators.

"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.

Catherine Hand O'Dell is the executive producer of Healthcare '08: Search for Solution.
