Sacramento Bee

Gov. Jerry Brown ordered Health and Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley this week to form a task force to write a 10-year plan for improving Californians’ health and controlling health-care costs. In an executive order Thursday, Brown called for a “Let’s Get Healthy California Task Force” to include representatives of patients, providers and labor unions, among others. The group is to report by Dec. 15 on targets for reducing diabetes, asthma, childhood obesity and other chronic conditions, as well as reducing hospital re-admissions and increasing the number of children who receive vaccines.
