The world of health care advocacy lost a powerful but modest leader, Rob Restuccia, who was considered by many to be the “father of health care reform.” In the words of Family Voices Executive Director Nora Wells, “In creating and leading Health Care for All, the Massachusetts advocacy organization for universal healthcare, and then in his leadership of the national Community Catalyst organization, Rob was a rock star, with no need for stardom.
