The French/Scottish vocalist spent her young life in Paris, training four hours a day as an ice skater, with breaks for the occasional gig as a child actor. Somehow, she knew she would be a singer someday, even though that was never the focus of her life. She now lives and works in England, singing and playing accordion, performing a repertoire influenced by everyone from Edith Piaf to Billie Holiday.

In an all-new “The Business Beat,” Steve Jones-D’Agostino interviews Eric Schultz, president and CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. They talk about healing our ailing American health system.

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care is one of the nation’s leading not-for-profit health-services companies that, along with its subsidiaries, seeks to improve the well-being of its 2.7 million customers. Its flagship health plans in New England provide health coverage to 1.3 million members, while another 1.4 million individuals are served through Health Plans Inc., a subsidiary that provides integrated-care management, health coaching, and plan-administration solutions to self-funded employers nationwide. 

Harvard Pilgrim’s stated mission is to improve the quality and value of health care for the people and communities it serves. It aims to do that through the health plans it offers, as well as through: the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, a research and teaching collaboration with Harvard Medical School; and, the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation, which provides tools, training and leadership to help build healthy communities.

For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care reported: total revenues – which they call premium revenues – of $3.8 billion, up from $2.7 billion the year before; and a net loss of $48.5 million, down from a net loss of $54.8 million the year before.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
