Save to active project


We are deeply grateful to our many colleagues, including some of the country's most prominent health policy researchers, who made this book possible. The twenty authors who contributed chapters addressed some of the most pressing policy challenges facing our nation and graciously tolerated our editorial prodding.

This volume was supported by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation through its national program, Investigator Awards in Health Policy Research, that seeks to broaden understanding of health policy challenges and choices. Risa LavizzoMourey, the president and chief executive officer of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Steve Schroeder, the foundation's past president and CEO, have been especially helpful over the years. Other involved staff members at the foundation include Lori Melichar, Constance Pechura, Robert Hughes, Penny Bolla, Paul Tarini, Joan Barlow, Leoni Infantry, and Deborah Malloy. Alvin Tarlov, who chairs our National Advisory Committee, deserves special acknowledgment. This program has also gained from the participation and commitment of the many other outstanding individuals who have served as members of our National Advisory Committee and from the work of Linda Loranger and Mary Darby of Burness Communications, who have helped the investigators disseminate their research findings.

Thanks are also due to the people who assisted in preparing this book: Marlie Wasserman, Marilyn Campbell, Michele Gisbert, and Nicole Manganaro at Rutgers University Press and Cynthia Church and Elizabeth Cooper at the Investigator Awards National Program Office. Special thanks to Sandra Hackman of Bedford, Massachusetts, who helped to make this book accessible to a broad audience.
