Jim Boatman introduced Chuck Gulsvig, director of public affairs, Sanford Health, Fargo, to speak at the Sept. 13 Kiwanis meeting.
Gulsvig said he likes to speak to service clubs about Sanford Health because they also care about their communities. Sanford is the largest nonprofit health facility in the United States. The Sanford system has five Centers of Excellence: sports medicine and orthopedics, cancer, heart, women and children. The area it serves reaches from Thief River Falls, Minn., in the north to south just into Nebraska. Gulsvig said Denny Sanford investied $400 million with the plan for children’s clinics to be developed around the world to do research to cure diseases. The disease chosen first was Type 1 diabetes and he hopes a cure can be found in his lifetime.
