Happy (Health Policy) Valentine’s Day!

Posted February, 14 2012 by arianne

Well, it’s that time of the year again! February 14th and love is in the air – and in the social media blogosphere…

Anybody who is on twitter or follows us @hcfany will probably have noticed the hashtag #healthpolicyvalentines take off at the end of last week.  This has really brought a smile to this blogger’s face these past few days.  So, in the spirit of today’s lighthearted theme, I thought I would post some of the highlights here for our loyal readers.
