In 2014, there were over 5,000 reports of violence and maltreatment against children in Wisconsin. While Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s role in treating victims is easily understood, what’s less known is the myriad of ways Children’s is working to combat this preventable epidemic directly in our communities. Peggy Troy, CEO of Children’s, shared how their team is addressing the 90 percent of risk factors outside of the doctor’s office that affect a child’s health and well-being, and the role she believes the business community needs to play to ensure all kids have a chance at a healthy life.

The Rotary Person of the Year vocational award recognizes individuals who, through their profession, have made the community a better place to live and work. Their contributions may have been in the form of important leadership activities or in the advancement of ideas, products or services.
John Daniels became chairman emeritus of Quarles & Brady LLP in October 2013, having completed an extraordinarily successful six-year term as the first African American chairman of the firm. He led the firm through a fundamental transformation, shifting from the traditional operational model upon which most major law firms are built to a client-centric, business-minded organization. John drove that cultural shift in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression, leading the firm to significant growth while much of the legal industry declined. John has further led Quarles to a position of industry prominence as a firm that values diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Through his strong leadership during turbulent times and his dedication to diversity, John Daniels has made Southeastern Wisconsin a better place to live and work.
Due to technical issues, the introduction by Dr. Joan Prince
