New Generation of Healthcare

Washington, DC (PressExposure) March 02, 2007 -- Washington D.C. (March 8th, 2007 10:30 a.m.) - "Healthcare for Less" author, Michelle Katz, will be one of the featured speakers participating in the Executive Women in Government's (EWG) Annual Summit. Some of the nation's top financial stories and trends will be discussed at this event; one vital issue being the cost of healthcare. Katz will give her personal experiences and describe what it takes to navigate through the healthcare system in order to save money.

"No one is immune. Government employees are affected by the increasing costs of healthcare just as much as those in the private sector, unfortunately, they may not notice until it is too late. 'Healthcare for Less' offers some simple tools to help the reader become their own healthcare advocate and avoid these situations that can leave one bankrupt," says Katz. The "Healthcare for Less" author, who worked at the FDA some years back, offers some time-tested tips for dealing with the high costs of healthcare, no matter what your employment history; public or private. Katz has appeared on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, Oprah & Friends, and has been quoted in many national publications. Her background as a healthcare administrator, clinician, and patient, as well as the host and producer of "Today's Health," give her a unique perspective on a wide variety of healthcare issues.
