Welcome

Roger H. Strube, M.D.

(Retired)

MyBookBackCvr02

Dr. Strube is a physician, with over thirty years combined experience in family practice and administrative medicine. As a health care insider, he developed a unique perspective on and solutions for the challenges of both medical care delivery and financing.

He retired after 15 years as a health insurance company executive, serving as a medical director for various managed care organizations (MCOs). Following retirement, he and his wife Kathy moved aboard his sailing catamaran, Millennium Dragon. They cruised the Intra-Costal Waterway from Charleston South Carolina, to St. Petersburg Florida, spending months at a time in the Bahamas and Florida Keys.

The health care reform debate pulled him out of retirement. He began writing Discovering the Cause and the Cure for America’s Health Care Crisis in February 2009. Dr. Strube lives with his wife on Florida’s west coast, in Punta Gorda.

I began writing my manuscript on the American health care system crisis in February 2009. It was submitted for publication on February 10, 2011. Discovering the Cause and the Cure for America’s Health Care Crisis is now available on Amazon.

Wingsail for Small Trimaran

The 16 foot trimarans pictured to the right were built as experimental platforms for use in developing a small multihull wingsail driven vessel. When the project is completed the small wingsailed trimaran is intended for use by disabled and elderly sailors in shallow, protected waters. Use of a wing will eliminate virtually all the ropes, sheets and lines necessary to trim the soft sails of vessels like those pictured to the right.

This project started in the early 1990s but was delayed by life, work, retirement and writing Discovering the Cause and the Cure for America’s Health Care Crisis. I will resume the project this spring, after the book is published.

The third and final iteration in the process of developing the sailing platform is FloWinGo, based on a Kurt Hughes design. I will fit this trimaran with the first wing. The other two soft sailed trimarans will be used to compare speed and sailing angles.
