Health Care Reform Expert Sally Pipes in Chicago for Two Events on October 18th

Published October 5, 2004

(Chicago, IL) The Heartland Institute welcomes health care reform expert and author Sally C. Pipes to the Windy City on Monday, October 18, for a luncheon event and after-work reception. Pipes will discuss her new book, Miracle Cure: How to Solve America’s Health-Care Crisis and Why Canada Isn’t the Answer.

“Sally Pipes is a nationally and internationally known expert on health care reform,” said Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland Institute, a 20-year-old nonprofit research organization based in Chicago. “As a Canadian, Sally understands the Canadian health care industry first-hand. And as she points out in her new book, Canada’s price controls are not the answer to rising costs or health insurance problems in the U.S. She is a powerful advocate for consumer-driven health care and a fierce critic of relying even more on government.”

Pipes, a Canadian citizen living in the United States, is president of the San Francisco-based Pacific Research Institute. She will speak at two events while in Chicago:

  • A luncheon from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the offices of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 311 South Wacker Drive, Suite 1500, Chicago.
  • An after-work reception from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the offices of The Heartland Institute, 19 South LaSalle Street, Suite 903, Chicago.

The cost for each event is $15 in advance or $20 at the door; Heartland members may attend for the discounted prices of $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Press and elected officials may attend for free. Register in the Heartland online store at or call Latonya Harris at 312/377-4000.
