Academy Represented on Bipartisan Policy Center's CEO Advisory Board

The Academy's chief executive officer, Patricia Babjak, is representing the Academy and the dietetics profession on the Bipartisan Policy Center's Advisory Board on Health and Innovation. Babjak met last week with business and health leaders to help launch a new CEO Council on Health and Innovation, comprised of chief executives of some of the nation's largest employers who have a significant stake in the health and health care of their workforces.

Babjak is a member of BPC's Health Care Advisory Board, consisting of chief executives of organizations representing clinicians, consumers, health plans and hospitals. The Advisory Board will provide expert guidance in a new collaborative effort to improve employees' health and wellness and achieve higher quality and more cost-effective care. The goal is to highlight and encourage adoption of such practices by other large and medium-sized employers to improve employee health and the delivery of health care. Strategies and best practices will be released publicly in early 2014.

The Bipartisan Policy Center was founded in 2007 by former U.S. Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell. BPC is a nonprofit organization that "drives principled solutions through rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation and respectful dialogue. With projects in multiple issue areas, BPC combines politically balanced policymaking with strong, proactive advocacy and outreach."

"The CEO Council brings a critically important voice to health and health care," said BPC president Jason Grumet. "We are proud to be convening the CEOs of some of the nation's largest employers, along with nationally recognized health leaders to highlight and advance innovative, common-sense strategies that will drive meaningful national results."
