The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) celebrates 125 years as a cornerstone institution, innovation leader, and provider of the next generation of physicians for Wisconsin. However, this community asset was nearly lost fifty years ago when funding was challenged. Hear how Milwaukee’s leaders of the 1960-70s mobilized to build an academic medical center in our community with value that extends beyond healthcare to economic impact and vitality. Rob Henken, President, Wisconsin Policy Forum, will deliver a 50-year checkup on MCW, followed by Dr. John Raymond, MCW President/CEO, to discuss the vision and impact of academic medicine in our region.
