Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program Visits KCU

Leaders from throughout the Kansas City community gathered Dec. 9 at KCU to explore the impact of healthcare and aging from various perspectives and to discuss issues that need to be addressed. The visit by those involved with the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce's Centurions Leadership Program focused on the "Impact and Future of Healthcare Reform."

While on the KCU campus, the group heard from a panel that included Marc Hahn, DO, KCU president and chief executive officer, as well as Marshaun Butler, of Children's Mercy Hospital; Hilda Fuentes, of Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center; and Bruce Bagley, of TransforMed. Rick Kahle, of Lockton, served as the moderator. In addition, guests saw a cut suit demonstration and learned about our high-tech human patient simulators.

Since 1976, Centurions has earned a reputation for being a training ground for future Kansas City leaders. The two-year program focuses on building leadership skills and community awareness by organizing and participating in community initiatives.

KCU's own Richard Winslow, Ph.D., vice provost for student and enrollment services, is currently a Centurions member. KCU has been an active supporter of Centurions for more than a decade, sponsoring employees to represent the University in each class since 2003.
