Healthcare Coalition Names Influential New CEO

As it gears up for the anticipated effort on Capitol Hill and in the White House to reform the national healthcare system, the National Coalition on Health Care named longtime civil rights advocate Ralph Neas as its Chief Executive Officer on Wednesday.

In a release, the group characterized Neas, the former president and CEO at the People for the American Way and executive director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, as a well-respected non-partisan voice on the issue.
