Affordable healthcare essay contest

Just a quick note for our loquacious readers (many of whom also enjoy blogging): the Asian American Action-fund blog is sponsoring an essay contest centered around the healthcare debate. Specifically, how do we fix our system? Given the number of healthcare professionals in the South Asian American community I am guessing there are a lot of thoughts out there. Have at it:

AAA-Fund proudly announces its 2009 Healthcare Blogathon. Please send us your blog post on the following topic

How can we fix our healthcare system so that everyone can get access to quality, affordable healthcare? Please share your thoughts and personal stories on why we need healthcare reform now (500 words or less).

HOW TO ENTER:

Send your entries to Richard Chen (rchen [at] aaa-fund.org).

But hurry! The deadline: Friday, September 25, 8 pm ET. [Link]

I think I will end up being one of the judges. Prizes are as follows

First Place: One Hundred Fifty Dollars ($150), 2 free tickets to the 2010 AAA-Fund Gala (a $200 value), and an exclusive invitation to become a featured AAA-Fund Blogger

  1. Given the number of healthcare professionals

    good point. but do remember that one person’s “waste” is another person’s profit/income :-) healthcare is a growing industry right now, and we’re thinking healthcare workers might have great ideas on how to “bend the curve” in terms of the growth of their sector? :-)

  2. Given the number of healthcare professionals in the South Asian American community I am guessing there are a lot of thoughts out there

    What? We’re not concerned about the lack of South Asian representation in the insurance industry and malpractice/tort litigation practice? ;)

  3. Thanks, Abhi. The contest does indeed sound very affordable since all it requires is an email address.
