Kennedy joins Owl Insights with 35 years of experience as a legislator, serving 16 years in Congress and then consulting on increasing the understanding and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders within the healthcare industry. While in Congress, he was the principal author of the federal law known as the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act.
