Governor Casey Cagle, Louis W.

Panelists included: M.J. Collier Jr., M.D., vice president of the Georgia State Medical Association, Peter Pitts, former associate commissioner for external relations for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D., chairman of the Foundation's Board of Governors. The panelists focused on the challenges surrounding health care delivery in Georgia, specifically addressing therapeutic substitution, which is currently before the Georgia State Legislature.Georgia Lt. Governor Casey Cagle spoke on his new health care initiative, reinforcing his commitment to creating an affordable health care environment in which Georgia's citizens and businesses can prosper. Dr. Sullivan focused on his "symphonic" approach to health care delivery, stating that the best, most appropriate way for patients to receive care is through a symphony of health care delivery, with the doctor acting as the conductor. Dr. Sullivan emphasized that each aspect of the symphony must be transparent and fully appreciated and too much emphasis on one particular "instrument," or service area, such as cost alone, drowns out other important elements.The program is supported by Pfizer Inc.moreless
