I hope my local IORA [a multi-state health network] Primary Care provider will avail this information, since our UNH Research Department just began a [state-wide] "Community Matters" survey of individual municipalities.    ...   I miss the old "Consumer Majorities" we had during the tenure of the National Health Planning and Resources Development Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-641)... until those 'Consumer Majorities' provisions were 'gutted' during the Reagan administration.
