Jeff Bauer | Health Futurist & Conceptual Artist

Jeff Bauer has built a distinguished career by applying principles of creativity to health care and art.  Recipient of many national awards, he is widely recognized as a teacher, researcher, writer, and speaker on ways to improve the medical marketplace.  

He is now focused on speaking about strategies for real health reform and producing conceptual paintings that transform purposeful phrases into colorful kaleidoscopic images—making the verbal visual.  The common denominator of his provocative work in both areas is words.
