In June, the 2014 Leadership Dodge class attended a session on local healthcare. Ken Rogers of Eastman Drugs discussed how communities benefit from having both smaller-scale local independent pharmacies and larger commercial pharmacies.
The next speaker, Melissa Brantley from the Health Department District Office, spoke on the numerous programs that they provide to the local community.
The group then traveled to Dodge County Physical Therapy and the Dodge County Hospital where they toured both facilities. The Dodge County Hospital provided lunch and spoke to the group about how they operate and how health care finances have changed in the last few years.
During the June session, the class learned that Dodge County has a strong healthcare system, thanks to many dedicated groups and organizations. The next Leadership Dodge session is Agriculture Day in August.
