In partnership with St. John’s Medical Center, the Charture Institute is expanding its popular “22 in 21: Jackson Hole in the 21st Century” forums to present its first topic-specific forum: “22 in 21: The State of Our Health – What You Need to Know.”
The event will be held on Thursday, April 30, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Spring Creek Resort and will include lunch. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.22in21.com.
The day’s agenda will look at our community’s health from three different perspectives.
Setting the big-picture context will be Brian Gragnoloti, Senior Vice President of the Johns Hopkins Health System and a board member of the American Hospital Association. Mr. Gragnoloti’s remarks will focus on national health care, with an emphasis on the challenges facing small, rural communities.
Other speakers will offer perspectives at the regional level. Mike Tennican, chairperson of St. John’s Medical Center, and Dr. Lou Hochheiser, CEO of St. John’s Medical Center, will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing St. John’s in particular, and the broader Tetons-area community in general. In addition, Julia Heemstra and Sara Salo from St. John’s Wellness will share the findings of the Community Health Needs Assessment as it relates to the hospital’s role in the health of our community.
Following lunch, roundtable discussions will help participants explore the morning’s content, and lay the groundwork for actions that can help Teton County become a healthier, more vibrant community going forward.
The first 22 in 21 was held in 2012, and since then has become the premier annual event looking at the future of Jackson Hole and the greater Tetons region. “22 in 21: The State of Our Health – What You Need to Know” is the first in a series of issue-specific symposia. All previous 22 in 21 sessions have sold out, and, given the broad interest in community health, organizers expect “22 in 21: The State of Our Health” to sell out as well.
