Create 50,000 "lab coat"-manufacturing jobs
Grossman said college students "were drowning in debt," called the lack of primary care physicians in gateway communities "a crisis," and said wellness programs in the workplace were a good investment.
He also vowed to create 50,000 "lab coat"-manufacturing jobs in Massachusetts by creating a coalition of vo-tech high schools, community colleges and employers.

Supports Internet voting, to encourage youth participation
The relentless push to find ways in which technology can serve consumers can benefit voters as well. Tens of millions of Americans surf the Internet regularly,
and the number of personal computers capable of Internet access is growing worldwide from nearly 60 million in 1996 to an estimated 256 million in 2000. If we want to encourage consistent voting from an early age, our product must be accessible
where young Americans gather: the Internet. Improvement in on-line security make Internet voting a real possibility today.
Effective solutions must be consumer-based
and designed with the same innovative zeal displayed by the creators of such relatively mundane conveniences as the frozen dinner, on-line banking, and voice-mail products with hundreds of millions of satisfied customers.
