About our Speaker | Dr. Betsy McCaughey
Betsy McCaughey is a constitutional scholar with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, a patient advocate and health policy expert, and a former Lt. Governor of New York state.
In 2009 Dr. McCaughey was the first to uncover the health provisions slipped into the February, 2009 stimulus bill. Members of Congress were stunned to learn the stimulus bill could limit care for seniors and dictate your doctor's decisions.
Since then McCaughey has dissected each major health bill and reported the contents to the nation, dispelling false claims such as "you can keep your health plan if you like it," or "there will be no cuts to hurt seniors." She is one of the most frequent expert contributors on Fox News, CNBC and is heard daily on the nation's biggest radio talk stations.
In 2004, McCaughey founded and is now Chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths (also known as RID), a nationwide educational campaign to stop hospital-acquired infections. In five years, RID has made hospital infections a major public issue. It has provided compelling evidence that preventing infection improves hospital profitability as well as saving lives, and RID has won legislation in over 27 states for public reporting of infection rates. RID has become synonymous with patient safety and clean hospital care.
Betsy McCaughey is the author of over three hundred scholarly and popular articles, and three books, including a history of the U.S. Constitution.
Betsy McCaughey has taught at Vassar College and Columbia University, and she produced prize-winning studies while at two think tanks, the Manhattan Institute and later the Hudson Institute.
