Our Team

Susan Bornstein, MD, MPH
Founder and CEO

Susan G. Bornstein, MD, MPH is an OBGYN by training. She became so frustrated with the issues that her patients were having with cost and access to care that she returned to the University of Michigan for a Master’s in Public Health.


Susan has a comprehensive understanding of the healthcare delivery system, having cared for patients across a variety of practice settings, including running her own office for nearly 20 years. She has negotiated and tussled with insurance companies from the employer, provider, and patient perspectives, and is well aware of how frustrating, maddening, expensive, inefficient, and inequitable this process is. She is devoted to bridging the gap between the overwhelming evidence in favor of universal healthcare in the US, including a tax-based financing system proportional to means, and the public’s embrace and support of this concept. In service of this goal, she founded The Asclepius Initiative, where she enthusiastically serves as CEO and staff.


In her spare time, Susan enjoys running, reading, hiking, and baking (hence the running and hiking). She is at perpetual risk of becoming a crazy cat lady.

Hudson Kelley, MPA
Project Manager

Hudson Kelley holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Alabama. His two main career focuses have been on project management and data analysis, particularly in the nonprofit realm.


Hudson spent six years at HOPE International, a nonprofit focused on international development and empowerment. During his time there, he organized survey research projects across ten different countries to measure program impact and stakeholder satisfaction/engagement. In addition to managing these projects, Hudson also served as the quantitative and qualitative data analyst for their results, and was especially passionate about translating findings from the surveys into tangible action items. He feels at home in a spreadsheet and is the kind of person that wears shirts with data puns. 


Because Hudson was born in Alabama, he has a furious love for college football and the Alabama Crimson Tide. He is currently based in Pennsylvania but is soon to move to Louisville with his wife Sarah. His only child is Finn, a spoiled cat who rules the household. Hudson’s favorite things to do in his spare time are playing new board games and breaking out of escape rooms.
