Who We Are

Little attention has been paid to efforts in the states to educate local leaders and the citizens as a whole on the issue.  Therefore, our goal is to influence and mobilize thought and policy leaders and their supporters locally and nationally to the battle to protect individual rights in this arena, including the extensive promotion of these groups with local and national media of all types.

The message of individual liberty and personal freedom in health and health care has not yet become a central part of the national debate. We must now set the stage to place freedom as the cornerstone upon which limited government, true competition reforms can be viewed as good, viable, compassionate, and sustainable alternatives to the current situation, which all sides agree upon as unsustainable.

Further, we must enhance state efforts to successfully use these principles to protect the health care rights of their citizens.

Our chairman

Eric Novack, MD, is a board certified orthopedic surgeon in full time clinical practice in Glendale.

He is chairman of Arizonans for Health Care Freedom, the group pushing for passage of the Arizona Health Care Freedom Act, which will be on the November 2010 ballot here in Arizona, and place individual liberty protections for health and health care into our state constitution.

Novack testified in Congress this year about the proposed health care reform bills, one of only a few physicians nationwide to do so. He has appeared multiple times on national cable television on CNN and Fox News, as well as multiple nationwide radio appearances.

His health care policy writings have appeared in publications including the Washington Post, Washington Times, Human Events, Politico.com, and the Washington Examiner.

Novack believes strongly that unless we act, and act decisively to protect the rights of people and families to be in control of their own health and health care decisions, those rights will be sacrificed on the altar of health care reform.
