Straight Talk Texas #1: Conversation with Margaret and Tom about health care in Texas.  

Date: March 31, 2020

Former Secretary of Education and current President and CEO of Texas 2036 Margaret Spellings talks with Texas 2036 Founder and Chairman Tom Luce about health in Texas. In this 20:36 video, they discuss what COVID-19 has taught us about our health care system in Texas, from the short-term weaknesses that need attention to the long-term priorities that will ensure Texas is the best place to live and work.

What is Straight Talk Texas?

Today, it’s more important than ever for people across Texas to have access to discussions they can trust about challenges facing our state now and in the future. To be the best place to live and work, we need to listen, learn and be aware of what is on the minds of Texas leaders, policy experts, educators and health professionals.

If history is any guide, Texas can come back strong from the current challenges we face. It’s up to all of us to work together to make sure that happens. So, take 20 minutes and 36 seconds to listen in as state leaders talk about health care, education, workforce development and government performance. We hope these videos will provide a front-row seat to conversations that will illuminate and help shape the historic decisions currently facing our state.
