Women’s Health Care in the Vail Valley: Where We Were, Where We Are and Where We Need to Be

Hot Topics

with Vicki Cowart, Jenny Lang and TR Reid

February 7, 2018

Colorado Mountain College | Edwards Campus

Living in what is arguably the finest resort community in the nation can be a struggle for the people who labor, often invisibly, to help keep us on top. Healthcare, both its cost and accessibility, for low-income families is a large part of this struggle, and meeting the special requirements of women’s health care can be a particular challenge. In the midst of our obvious prosperity rests a thorny question: How do we make health care both accessible and affordable for our most vulnerable and, at the same time, important residents?
This program will examine the past, present, and future of this pressing need. Our panelists represent the major players at work both defining and addressing this problem.
Vicki Cowart, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains approaches this challenge from the perspective of the organization at the forefront of the issue of women’s health care.
Jenny Lang has worked as a Nurse Practitioner at Mountain Family Health Center since 2000 and approaches this challenge in her day-to-day work.
TR Reid is an author, lecturer, documentary filmmaker, and reporter who has written books on diverse subjects including an examination of how five industrialized democracies provide high quality of health care for all.

Note: doors will open at 5:30 p.m.; the program begins at 6 p.m.
