Dr. David Cutler has developed an impressive record of exceptional achievement in both academia and the public sector. He was Senior Health Care Advisor to Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign and served on the Council of Economic Advisors and National Economic Council under President Clinton. Dr. Cutler now works closely with members of Congress, state governments, corporations and private interest groups to formulate strategies for health-care reform and has done pioneering research on the value of medical innovation and strategies to improve the return on our health care dollars.
Currently, Dr. Cutler is the Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics at Harvard University and is a member of the Institute of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His focus is on value creation: taking a health care system that is haphazard in quality and too costly and centering it on the core mission of value enhancement. In his compelling presentations, Dr. Cutler discusses with audiences the opportunities and challenges of health care reform, how the political process approaches reform and the implications of current public policies for businesses and individuals.
