AMA President-elect Jim Rohack, MD, was kind enough to share the presentation he is using during the 2009 AMA Annual Meeting to outline the American Medical Association's priorities and positions on health system reform. You might want to pay close attention to Slide 16, which shows the effect of "bending the curve" on the rate of health care spending in the U.S.
