Professor, writer, and independent researcher Kat Lahr spent the last five years researching the current state of the healthcare industry in an effort to seek reform opportunities. What she found astounded her. This short presentation reviews a small portion of the data she came across and subsequent conclusions from her analysis. Now as a public service, she is bringing the conversation to the people as a way to inform healthcare consumers through her community talks and future book series. Her passion for public health has given her appointment by the Illinois Governor on the State Health Improvement Planning Council where she hopes to positively influence health policy.
