Speak about healthcare

Do you consider yourself to be a clinical expert? Are you a public speaker? Perhaps you'd like to get involved in some more public speaking (let me clarify: paid speaking). Well, perhaps you'd like to take a look at this:
Speakers on Healthcare (
Most of the speakers are politicians and celebrities (although maybe this is one way you can become a celebrity). Dr. Regina Benjamin (nominated this week to be the next surgeon general) was one of about 50 political and health celebrities signed up with Speakers on Healthcare. Who else is on the list of speakers? You have people like:
Lance Armstrong

Meredith Baxter

Mehmet Oz, MD, MBA
* "America's Doctor" on Oprah
