NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by Vanderbilt:

William Turner, Former Obama health care advisor, Professor of Education and Human Development

Turner, an expert on mental health policy and family therapy, served from 2007-2008 in the office of presidential candidate Barack Obama as a Robert Wood Johnson Senior Health Policy Fellow.

Turner can discuss both the evolution and history of current health care reform and the key issues he believes are being lost in the debate over how the nation will pay for health care. "What's most disappointing is that we're really only talking about how to pay for health care. Though costs are enormously important, what I heard from every physicians and nurses group during my time on Capitol Hill was the need to overhaul health care in general from how we provide care, to workforce issues, to mental health. The debate needs to be broader than costs."

Larry Van Horn, associate professor of health care management, director of health care programs

Van Horn is an expert on health care management and economics. He's writing a book with Tennessee congressman Jim Cooper on the business of health care.

Van Horn thinks some keys to fixing the health care system are to hold people accountable for their actions and treat health insurance like auto or life insurance. This could result in lowering rates by separating a person's day-to-day health care needs from health emergencies. Watch Van Horn at http://tinyurl.com/cxh8h4.

James Blumstein, University Professor of constitutional and health law and policy; director, Health Policy Center

Blumstein ranks among the nation's most prominent scholars of health law, law and medicine and voting rights. As founder of the Vanderbilt Institute for Public Policy Studies and director of its Health Policy Center, Blumstein served as the principal investigator on numerous grants concerning managed care, hospital management and medical malpractice. He co-authored a major study on TennCare, one of the first statewide experiments in enrolling Medicaid patients in managed care.

Bruce Oppenheimer, professor of political science

Oppenheimer researches the legislative process, political parties and congressional elections. He co-authored the award-winning book Sizing Up the Senate: The Unequal Consequences of Equal Representation.

Oppenheimer can discuss the complex strategies behind passing a health care bill and the strategic game between the White House and GOP.
