Wendell Potter, Nationally known Author of "Deadly Spin," is coming to Charlotte!

On Friday, April 12, you'll have three great opportunities to meet and hear from one of the courageous, executive “whistleblowers” from inside the insurance industry! Hear from ex-CIGNA executive Wendell Potter speak on Medicare for All: The Fight, the Obstacles, and the Benefits.

Programs are offered at noon, 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm. Click here for details!

Wendell Potter is the President of the Business Initiative for Health Policy. He spent 20 years working as a public relations executive for health insurers, before leaving his position as the Vice President of Communications for CIGNA to become an advocate for meaningful healthcare reform.

As part of that effort, he has testified at widely covered Congressional hearings, wrote Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks out on how Corporate PR is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans, co-authored Nation on the Take: How Big Money Corrupts our Democracy and What We Can Do About It, and founded Tarbell.org, a reader-funded journalism project.

Please join us and bring a friend.
