Wendell Potter is a former health insurance company executive who became that industry’s worst nightmare. Time Magazine called Wendell “the ideal whistleblower.” Wendell walked away from his job at Cigna, the giant health insurance corporation, in 2008 after what he has described as a crisis of conscience. Now, Wendell is President of two organizations -- the Center for Health & Democracy and Business Leaders for Health Care Transformation -- working to end the employer-based health insurance system and guarantee health care for all Americans. Wendell went on to become a bestselling author. The New York Times called his first book – Deadly Spin – “a tour de force.” Wendell has also written numerous articles for publications in the U.S. and abroad, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Newsweek and the Guardian, and has been a frequent guest on TV and radio.
Chuck Pennacchio, Ph.D., is a five-decade-long issue, electoral, and union organizer; 32-year professor of history and politics in Colorado, Texas, and Pennsylvania; president of the One Payer States network; senior advisor to Healthcare for All Pennsylvania; co-facilitator of Our Revolution PA; founder of the Justice for All Network; producer of the single-payer documentary “Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point”; former aide to four U.S. Senators and one U.S. House Member; 2006 Democratic candidate for the United States Senate (PA); 2016 Bernie Sanders delegate; and author/co-author of several books, book chapters, and articles on U.S. and European history, U.S. healthcare, and U.S. politics. More importantly, Chuck is the father of two adult-children, Sophia and Ben, who are also politically and intellectually engaged citizens.
