Today, ePathway Academy students the VA Central California Healthcare System. Students were lucky enough to hear from Gabriel Ponce, volunteer supervisor for the hospital, Mary Golden, who handles some of the hospital’s educational outreach, Linda Hayes, who has worked in mental health services and many other areas of the hospital, and Dr. Ilia, a longtime orthopedic surgeon who’s Croatian but grew up in Chile. In addition to learning about the VA hospital’s unique organizational culture, students learned about applications of Lean manufacturing in healthcare, caring for the whole patient, how capital funding works for project finance, population health, career options in healthcare, and even some wise life advice on personal finance and economics. Thanks to the VA and their many caring team members for hosting us!
