As a true
visionary John has been working with Chief Michell Hicks, former Eastern Band Cherokee Chief
since 2012 to develop a revolutionary healthcare delivery system for Native Americans. After
evaluating the current Indian healthcare model in place it was evident that the systems that
were designed in the 50’s were outdated and are not adequately performing in today’s
environment. In 2016 he Formed Gen7 Healthcare to build this new Native-owned healthcare
model and extend it into the commercial market. The Gen7 Model will raise the level of
tribal healthcare and provide new local services that were once not available in most tribal
health systems. The Gen7 Model will also provide tribes with new revenue streams that will
be less reactionary to economic downturns.
