Robert “Bob” Bacher has had a passion for improving our health and well-being for 40 years. Bob is a Chemical Engineer by training and worked for the Eastman Kodak Company. Bob held several leadership positions for Kodak in manufacturing, R&D and several business units as he established systems, processes and practices to positively change behavior and improve the quality of Kodak’s products. After 30 years’ working for Kodak and in upstate New York and his beloved Colorado, Bob retired. He and his wife now live in Delaware. Bob and his wife have two sons and four grandchildren.
Bob’s passion for health care prevention has never faltered but the state of our health care system has. Bob has learned over the years that our health has nothing to do with our health care system. Our health is dependent on our choices of lifestyle living. Our health care system is a mess. We have a choice of sitting on the sidelines and watching or to stand up and make a difference. Bob choose to stand up, write a book, create a website and put some processes in place so that you, the reader can benefit. Life is short and to be enjoyed. Don’t sit but stand up!
