About Andrew Van Dam

Andrew Van Dam of The Wall Street Journal previously worked at the AHCJ offices while earning his master’s degree at the Missouri School of Journalism.

The Wall Street Journal‘s Vanessa Fuhrmans and Avery Johnson shed some light on the insurance industry’s low-key effort to ensure its interests are represented at town hall meetings across the country. The duo reported that insurers have sent thousands of employees to these meetings, many armed with memos instructing them to stay calm and to avoid being baited into joining the chaos that has consumed so many recent town hall events.
