AHDI is thrilled to announce Kathy Dempsey as the 2019 Healthcare Documentation Integrity Virtual Conference keynote speaker this August. Kathy is an award-winning author, keynote speaker and change expert. She is President of Keep Shedding! Inc. Kathy ignites people and organizations with the skills and motivation to lead and manage change. Adapt Quicker…Get Results!

Her most popular book, Shed or You're Dead®: 31 Unconventional Strategies for Growth and Change has been awarded with a Writer's Digest International Book Award.

Her “signature story” is her transformation from working as an ER/trauma nurse to becoming the first health care worker in America to be diagnosed positive for AIDS as a result of workplace exposure. The diagnosis, which was a death sentence in the mid-80s, was confirmed with multiple positive tests. Months later, all tests returned negative. Was it a miracle or medical error? Nobody can explain it. What’s certain is that the three-month period Kathy lived with that traumatic diagnosis was a life-altering experience.

This event forced Kathy to learn about hard changes in life and how to adapt to them. What emerged was a new life philosophy: SHED. Today Kathy’s presentations reach far beyond that experience. They are a wake-up call to provide focus, inspiration and practical tools for people to lead and manage change at work and in life.
