Dr. Josh Luke is well known for using personal stories to engage audiences and teach businesses and individuals how to prepare for forthcoming changes in the American health care system. His expertise includes sharing how to make health care more affordable for your family and employees, as well as how to get access to the best doctors and specialists who are often difficult to access. After ten years as a hospital CEO, Luke was out of a job, had no health insurance for his family, and his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. He now finds solace in sharing his experiences as a caretaker for his mom; and being without health insurance for his family has given him a deeply emotional understanding of the other side of care delivery.

He shares the well-kept secrets of the industry with the mainstream to ensure that individuals are fully informed to protect and ensure the health of family members and employees. Luke shares his faith and how it impacted his journey, and his presentations are always entertaining, humorous, and leave the audience feeling great and informed. Luke, who started his career in sports marketing representing some of the most famous athletes in the world, shares some of these memories as they help shape the leader he became as a hospital CEO at age 32.
