Michael Leavitt Calls for Concerted Action on Biomedical Innovation

Former HHS secretary urges government leaders and investment community to back initiative

Published: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 - 16:47


(Worldwide Speakers Group: Alexandria, VA) -- Former U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary and three-term governor, Michael O. Leavitt, has proposed a provocative plan to help revive the economy, drive productivity, and spur job creation: biomedical innovation.

In an article co-authored with former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt, Leavitt urges government leaders, the investment community, and all Americans to unite behind this important initiative to save the faltering U.S. economy and millions of American lives.

Leavitt’s bipartisan proposal transcends the petty bickering of politics and contends a compelling case of working and investing in the “biomedical frontier,” resulting in substantive short- and long-term solutions for chronic crushing problems on both a micro and macro level.

To support this rallying cry, Leavitt is partnering with renowned lecture agency WorldWide Speakers Group (WWSG) to discuss this and other items that are vital to the nation’s growth and stability. Among those topics, Leavitt brings his trusted views to one of America’s foremost, foreboding issues: health care reform. He also tackles the burgeoning problem of food safety, examining its increasing occurrences, imminent threat, and practical prevention.

“We are honored to support [former] Secretary Leavitt on matters of such critical national importance,” says Robert Thomas, CEO of WorldWide Speakers Group. “His exceptional experience and leadership provide organizations with real-world perspective and intelligence to effectively address issues plaguing America’s health care community.”

As the medical industry remains one of the increasingly few growth segments in the U.S. economy, Leavitt offers astute insight, unparalleled expertise and innovative, strategic solutions to help health care organizations navigate today’s most complex issues.
