MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin has appointed a nursing professor at the University of Vermont to the five-member panel that is working to develop Vermont's new health care system.
Betty Rambur, a registered nurse and professor of nursing and health policy at the University of Vermont, will fill out the term of Al Gobeille, ('go-BAY') who is replacing the departing Anya Rader Wallack as chair of the Green Mountain Care Board.
The board is working to craft policies for containing costs in health care and moving Vermont as close as possible to a single-payer health care system beginning in 2017.
Rambur has worked as a family nurse practitioner, physician assistant, health services researcher, and nurse educator.
