VMC Foundation: Jobs, health, and Silicon Valley


Next Friday, please consider attending a breakfast forum I’m helping present…and I promise you’ll be glad you did, because it’s important and engaging.

I’m in this year’s class of American Leadership Forum, and our event Friday March 12 is called “A New Recipe for Job Growth.” What it WON’T be is a typical “panel discussion with Q&A.” Rather, you will be a participant in this uncommon conversation aimed at solving what many feel is our #1 problem: Jobs.

How does the VMC Foundation fit in? That’s easy: Your public hospital’s patient population is soaring as unprecedented numbers of people have lost their jobs/ health coverage and are turning to VMC. The stress is at an all-time high, and we’ve got to do something. Several things, actually.

Silicon Valley’s unemployment rate is WAY higher than the national average. Add to that Colorado’s Governor declaring “Colorado Loves California” Day last month, trying to lure companies away from here to relocate there. Yikes.

We’ve assembled a top group of leaders to participate in this critical discussion. Please be one of them, and register by clicking here.
