WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Barack Obama is taking his health care message back on the road this week.
The White House says that the president will hold a rally on health care Thursday at the University of Maryland. The school is located in College Park, Maryland, about ten miles from the White House.
The president headlined a similar rally at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota Saturday, and discussed health care reform in an interview that aired Sunday night on "60 Minutes" on CBS, part of a push by the White House to build momentum out of Obama's health care address last Wednesday night to a joint-session of Congress.
The president is also likely to raise the issue when he travels to Pittsburgh and speaks in front of the AFL-CIO annual convention Tuesday.
