Following a 20-year career as a corporate public relations executive, Wendell left his position as vice president of communications for Cigna, one of the nation's largest health insurers, to advocate for meaningful health care reform. In widely covered congressional hearings, Wendell disclosed how insurance companies, to boost profits, engage in practices that have forced millions of Americans into the ranks of the uninsured, and use deceptive PR tactics to undermine health care reform. Wendell is author of Deadly Spin and Nation on the Take. His newest project is Tarbell.org, which examines how money in politics impacts millions of Americans.
