Helen Binns, MD, MPH is a national leader in children’s environmental health issues. As director of the Nutritional Evaluation and Lead Evaluation Clinics at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Binns conducts important research on nutrition, tobacco and lead poisoning prevention in children. She currently is chairperson of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Environmental Health and the AAP liaison to the CDC Advisory Committee on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention. She is a member of the Executive Board of the Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics.
Dr. Claudia Fegan is chief medical officer for the John H. Stoger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

A past president of Physicians for a National Health Program, Dr. Fegan has appeared on a number of national television and radio programs on behalf of PNHP, and she has lectured extensively to both medical and community audiences on health care reform in the U.S. and Canada. She is a co-author of "Universal Healthcare: What the United States Can Learn from Canada" (1999) and a contributor to "10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care" (2008).
