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

Event Date Wed Feb 7, 2018
Event Time 9 AM - 10 AM
Colorado Mountain College150 Miller Ranch Road

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.
