Clinton to promote health plan in Baltimore


WASHINGTON -- President Clinton will stop in Baltimore tomorrow to promote his health care reform plan, one day after presenting the finished product to Congress.

Mr. Clinton, expected to be accompanied by his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is to address the Johns Hopkins medical community at noon, White House officials said yesterday. The event is to be held at the Newton H. White Jr. Athletic Center on the Homewood campus.

Later in the day, Mr. Clinton will campaign in New York City for Mayor David N. Dinkins, who faces a tough challenge in next Tuesday's election, before heading for Boston and the rededication of the John F. Kennedy presidential library on Friday.

The visit will be Mr. Clinton's third to the Baltimore area since taking office. He threw out the first pitch at the Orioles' home opener in April and toured a defense plant in Linthicum in March.

Mrs. Clinton, who chaired the administration task force that drafted the health reform blueprint, discussed health care with residents at a Fells Point restaurant in May and spoke at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in June.
