Colorado Health Foundation CEO visits area…

phmkCEOOfColo.HealthFoundationVisitsCEO of the Colorado Health Foundation Karen McNeil-Miller of Denver, led an entourage of healthcare-interested support folks to Meeker and Craig on Monday.

Above, she leads the discussion in the Pioneers Medical Center Board Room with healthcare-related folks from Meeker and Rangely on healthcare needs and barriers. Her message was for our communities to establish our own agendas, projects to address those needs and then come to the foundation for help in implementing those projects. McNeil-Miller is conducting a healthcare listening tour across the state to hear from past and potential grantees, community residents and leaders about their perspectives on health. Margie Joy, executive director of the Pioneers Healthcare Foundation, which hosted the event, expressed “deep appreciation to McNeil-Miller for bringing the group to Rio Blanco County and reaching out to us.”
