Change is Here to Stay (No Matter Who Wins in November)
Republicans have campaigned to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) but parts of healthcare reform, particularly Value-Based Care, aren’t going away. Dr. Luke explains why.
A straight-talker who shakes up the status quo, Dr. Luke’s tell all book “Ex-Acute” takes an unflinching, nonpartisan look at what’s wrong with healthcare in America from the perspective of a former hospital CEO. He shares key points all Americans need to know to navigate the evolving system.

Both of Dr. Luke’s grandmothers suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, and now his mother is in the advanced stages of the debilitating illness, which afflicts 5.3 million Americans – 1 in 9 over age 65. With millions more cases expected as Baby Boomers age and costs for care skyrocketing, Dr. Luke discusses the search for a cure, and what people can do to prepare.
How Millennials Are Changing Everything
What are the major trends shaping the future? Dr. Luke, a “proud Gen X-er,” discusses how the Millennial Generation is shaping not only healthcare but our economy and society.
