About my guests:
Twila Brase is president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF), a national patient-centered, privacy-focused, free-market policy organization established 23 years ago in Minnesota to protect patient and doctor freedom. She is author of the eight-time award-winning book Big Brother in the Exam Room: The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records (Beaver’s Pond Press, 2018).


Her efforts led to a national law requiring parental consent for research using newborn DNA, a national campaign exposing HIPAA as a data-sharing rule, an online nationwide directory of direct-pay practices, The Wedge of Health Freedom® (, and the Patient Toolbox (, an easy-to-use tool to help patients understand their options in coercive situations and maintain control over their treatment decisions.


She also initiated CCHF’s Face Freedom campaign ( and a “Don’t Be Bullied” billboard campaign ( to stop mask and vaccination mandates. Her campaign to separate Medicare enrollment from citizen access to their rightful Social Security benefits was supported by more than 44 free-market organizations nationwide.


This request was successfully included in President Trump’s Medicare Executive Order signed on Oct. 3, 2019.  Twila’s “Health Freedom Minute” is heard weekdays by more than 5 million listeners on more than 870 radio stations in 48 states. She provides testimony at state legislatures, meets with members of Congress and health care policymakers, tweets @twilabrase, conducts original research, speaks around the country and has been featured by CNN, Forbes, Fox News, Nature, NBC Today, Politico, Science, THE HILL, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.


In 2021, Twila authored CCHF’s “COVID-19 Quick Reference Guide” ( which was published online in December and updated March 2022. The guide, downloaded over 117,000 times, includes a Quick-Action Summary and instructions for an Early Treatment Kit, helps readers better understand the viral disease, find useful resources, and make decisions about Covid prevention and treatment in a timely manner.


Modern Healthcare named her #75 on their 2009 “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare” list.
