Yesterday, ABC News announced that medical editor — and ASF board member — Dr. Tim Johnson (along with Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer) will moderate a June 24 special with President Obama, “Questions for the President: Prescription for America.” 

On the ABC News website today, Dr. Tim takes a close look at Obama’s speech yesterday to the American Medical Association, and notes the “thunderous” applause that issued after this statement:

“You did not enter this profession to be bean-counters and paper-pushers. You entered this profession to be healers — and that’s what our health care system should let you be.”

(Obama went on to utter these encouraging words, as we noted yesterday.)
