Event recognizes volunteer physicians and their impact

Business leaders are being invited to be a part of one of the most exciting health care events of the season, The Event! 2007 — Hearts of Gold Reception.
The gala, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 12 at the Antlers Hilton Hotel, 4 S. Cascade Ave., will honor volunteer physicians.
The growing demands on physician time have limited the available time and resources necessary to help El Paso and Teller counties’ burgeoning under-insured/underserved population, but area doctors still find the time to deliver quality health care for people who cannot afford health insurance.
Without the volunteer physicians, the quality of health care in the Pikes Peak region would be severely impacted. Supporting the health care needs of the working poor also enhances the productivity and reliability of the work force. Economic development is directly affected by the availability of quality health care.
The formal portion of the program, from 6 to 6:45 p.m. will serve to honor volunteer physicians and announce initiatives. The remainder of the evening, 6:45 to 8 p.m. will be social and educational.
Community Health Partners and the Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce will host exhibit booths. Reservations are needed. Call 471-6991 by April 5.
