Hi Craig,

We have an ad agency in Nisswa, Minnesota which is about 14 miles north of of Brainerd. We do a lot of work with both public and private healthcare entities around the state, running the gamut from strategy development and planning to creative executions. Our experience with private healthcare centers is primarily with rural healthcare centers or those that are transitioning from "rural" to "urban" as they increase in size and sophistication to deal with expanding and emergent population demands.

Hi Craig,

Just got your message. I just got out of the first session and need to do a few things before the next. What roundtable are you attending at Lunch? Maybe we can sit at the same one and catch up.
