As nicely as I can put it...

What do ministers know about healthcare administration?

Well, for that matter... What do publishers know about healthcare administration? Or heads of corporate foundations?

Also good questions. Arguably anyone who has run a large business has potentially relevant knowledge, but there seem to be very few of those types on this board. And do any of them have healthcare experience? In such a highly regulated industry you'd like to see one or two people who really understand the framework Grady has to work in.

I bet these folks are all Emory graduates. What a bunch of rich guys. Somehow I don't trust these folks to be looking out for the uninsured of GA., not one little bit. What a crock.

Dear Miss Sarah, to answer your question about "What do ministers know about healthcare administration?" maybe not enough about healthcare administration itself, and I don't know about the others but Rev. Elligan knows about healthcare. Known for his community health advocacy, he's a member of the Morehouse School of Medicine Clincial Research Center Community Advisory Board and attends ongoing "mini med school classes to stay abreast of the lastest information and breakthroughs in healthcare; on the boards of American Heart Association; Association of Black Cardiologists; Organ Donors in the Black Community; works faithfully with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Hugh Spalding Children's Hospital; has worked tirelessly to close the health desparities gap for minorities; recognized for his work in programs on TB, HIV/AIDS, Diabtes, Ending Stroke; and has run the "Peachtree" 4 years. He is also the Pastor of a church in an underinsured community and provides an annual FREE health fair, as well as presents our congregation with special health information every 1st Sunday.
