“I am really excited to be part of FORESIGHT because so much of my work on public opinion and health care is focused on the here and now. Issues like affordability and the Affordable Care Act have dominated my work. But FORESIGHT is a chance to look out 10–50 years to see what the future of health can and should look like. This allows me to ask different kinds of questions and gain new insights. This is exactly the kind of conversation we all should be having as we talk about improving health and health care.”
