The Honorable Bobby Jindal

Chair, Center for a Healthy America

Bobby Jindal is originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and currently serves as the Chair of the Center for a Healthy America at AFPI. Jindal has a well-earned reputation as one of America’s most successful public sector executives and one of the boldest innovators in the healthcare and education sectors. Jindal used his two terms as Governor of Louisiana to rebuild and diversify the state’s economy and financial footing in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Jindal’s agenda included top-to-bottom reformation and privatization of the state-run charity hospital and the state’s healthcare payer systems. Fiscally, Jindal reduced the state budget by 26%, reduced the state employee headcount by 30,000, and implemented the largest income tax reduction in state history. Despite being the Nation’s youngest governor when he was elected in 2007, Jindal was well-prepared thanks to stints as the head of the state Department of Health and Hospitals, President of the University of Louisiana System, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Executive Director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare – all before his thirtieth birthday. Jindal graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Public Policy, with honors, from Brown University, and received a Master of Letters in Politics from Oxford University, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
