UNH Student Leader Named to National Health Care Reform Panel

A news tip for the long holiday weekend...

Erin Thesing, a University of New Hampshire senior from Hopkinton, has been chosen to serve on a national panel of political leaders and entertainment stars that will select the winning health care reform video in a contest sponsored by Organizing for America, the grassroots political organization affiliated with the Democratic Party that continues the activities of the Barack Obama presidential campaign.

Organizing for America's Health Reform Video Challenge asks supporters of health care reform across the country to submit personal video messages supporting the president's efforts to bring meaningful reform to the nation's health insurance system. The winning video will be aired on nationwide television. Thesing will join Democratic National Committee chair Gov. Tim Keane, former Barack Obama campaign manager David Plouffe and show business luminaries including will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and Seth Macfarlane, creator of "The Family Guy," to judge the entries.

Thesing is president of the UNH College Democrats and played an important role in last year's presidential campaign. She is an outstanding example of a UNH student using her education to work for the greater good. She is organizing a pro-health care telephone campaign on the UNH campus this weekend in conjunction with the university's homecoming weekend.
