WASHINGTON (AP) - A volunteer firefighter from Indiana took part in President Barack Obama's health care summit in Washington. Twenty-four-year-old Travis Ulerick of Dublin, Ind., introduced the president during the opening session of Thursday's meeting, which drew allies, skeptics and health care figures of all stripes to the White House to debate ideas for overhauling the nation's costly system. Ulerick works full time for the Wayne County community's ambulance service and is a senior at Ball State University. He helped organize a community discussion on health care at Dublin's fire station in December that was attended by members of the Obama transition team. Ulerick also is being featured in an upcoming White House video on the Web site healthreform.gov. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
