Exec. Dir., North Alabama Healthcare For All
Rob Kilpatrick is the Executive Director of North Alabama Healthcare for All, a chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program. He is a retired United States Marine Corps officer who also had a “second career” in the aerospace industry. His two careers took him to many countries around the world where he observed, first hand, a variety of healthcare systems. His personal volunteer activities, over the years, have put him in contact with many americans who have suffered due to lack of access to the high quality healthcare available to only some of our citizens. In comparing the United States healthcare system to those he observed in countries far less wealthy, he has become increasingly disenchanted with the United States system and convinced that our great nation can do better. Now, in retirement, he is devoting his full attention to advocating for a more humane and cost effective system of healthcare for all persons in the United States.
