Health is Patients
Our 2015 annual fundraising luncheon was held September 24. Nearly 300 Colorado health leaders joined us at the Denver Art Museum, where Thomas Goetz, a digital health expert, spoke about patient engagement and bold approaches to systems change. Prior to writing two critically-acclaimed books and giving two hugely popular TED talks, Goetz was the editor of WIRED magazine. He has served as Entrepreneur-in-Residence for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where he created Flip the Clinic, and offers a new vision of health care in the US.
We also honored four community champions for their dedicated service to underserved populations:
- Physician of the Year – Dr. Fred Michel, Mental Health Partners
- Non-Physician Provider of the Year – Karen Hayes, PA-C, ACS Community LIFT
- Advocate of the Year – Veronica Morales, Mountain Family Health Centers
- Lifetime Achievement – Grant Jones, Center for African-American Health
We hope to see you at next year’s event!
