The Citizens’ Health Care Working Group would like to thank all the people across the United States who helped us organize community meetings and encouraged neighbors and friends to attend meetings and to provide ideas, information, and input to the Working Group in person, in writing, and over the Internet. The Dialogue with the American People lists close to one hundred meetings and describes some of the contributions of organizations who worked with us over the past 18 months. Hundreds more individuals and organizations offered assistance with every aspect of our work. We hope that all know how deeply appreciative we are for their contributions.

We also offer our special thanks for data analyses conducted by staff of the Center for Financing, Access, and Cost Trends, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; the National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and the Economic Research Initiative on the Uninsured at the University of Michigan. These analyses, including data reported in The Health Report to the American People, helped us to understand important issues of access to care, health care costs, and quality of care.
