Long before the Affordable Care Act became the nation’s law and mandated changes in health care, Mission Health began transforming the way it serves patients and educates health care consumers. On this program, Mission Health CEO Dr. Ron Paulus explains how preventive health programs and telemedicine are improving patient care and reducing health care costs, and how nonprofit partnerships are addressing the medically underserved. Dr. John Connaughton, an economist with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Russell Stall, Executive Director of Greenville Forward, join the conversation.

As the head of the nation’s second largest credit union by deposits, State Employees’ Credit Union President and CEO Jim Blaine believes a simple strategy has been the key to growth. More customers have likely given credit unions a closer look in the aftermath of the nation’s financial meltdown and alleged misdeeds by some commercial banks and trading firms. On this program, Blaine discusses the rebuilding of public trust in banking and accountability of financial institutions. Russell Stall of Greenville Forward and Dr. Peter Summers, High Point University join the conversation

Philanthropy and Nonprofits

Posted on: February 8th, 2013 by admin

Few other organizations have weathered the barrage of challenges which have confronted most nonprofits in the Carolinas over the last few years. On the heels of the Great Recession, foundations froze grant-making, corporations slashed charitable giving and individuals held their wallets a little tighter. At the same time, demand for services spiked even more dramatically than the number of job loses and foreclosures in the region. On this program, we examine whether these trends are continuing into 2013 and if the growth of the nonprofit sector in the Carolinas is sustainable in an era of economic and philanthropic uncertainty. Our panel includes Mac Bennett of the United Way of the Midlands, Ran Coble of the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research, David Heinen of the N.C. Center for Nonprofits, and Russell Stall of Greenville Forward.

Workforce Development

Posted on: August 31st, 2012 by admin

With the November vote looming, economic developers remain cautiously optimistic about the region’s economic recovery amid the uncertainty of the elections. Many companies are growing and unemployment rates are falling. Still, it is clear the job of matching the Carolinas workforce with the needs of employers is far from complete. On this program, we look at the current state of the economy and our workforce. Participating in the conversation are Natalie English of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Susan Peters of Francis Marion University, Loren Kennedy of Kennedy Advisors, and Russell Stall of Greenville Forward.
