Special Guests for July Book Club Meeting

Phil Ennin, who was CEO at Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers at the time The Hospital was written, has agreed to join our discussion of the book. Without him, there would have been no book. He allowed the author to have almost complete access to the hospital's inner workings.

R.I.P. Dave Girves

Central Ohio progressives have lost a tireless activist, and for many, a good friend when Dave Girves passed away on January 16, 2015. His organizational skills, energy and kindness will be much missed.
