(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Brattleboro, VT -- August 4, 2010 --Marlboro College Graduate School will host a forum entitled, "Cooperative Whole Health Care: Can Windham County be a Pilot Project?" in Room 2East on Thursday, August 19 from 5:30-7:30pm.

The lead presenter will be Cheryl Conner, an attorney and holistic health care advocate who has recently formed the group, Holistic Healthcare Opportunities (H2O), to explore cooperative models of health care delivery, which the new federal health care bill provides financing for creating.

Conner, who teaches a course on new business forms and governance in Marlboro's MBA in Managing for Sustainability program, says a cooperative model is consistent with the single-payer health care approach currently being discussed by U.S. Senator Bernard Sanders , I-Vt., among others.

"Communities can come together, building on what is good and local, to make a full spectrum of health and wellness approaches available to all people regardless of income," says Conner. She will also present a proposal to Vermont's congressmen and state legislators whereby Holistic Health Opportunities would spearhead a cooperative health care initiative in Windham County and the rest of Vermont.

Following Conner's presentation, formal responses will be made by Richard Davis, the executive director for the Vermont Citizens Coalition for Health Care and weekly health care columnist for the Brattleboro Reformer, and Paul Kervick, the founder of Living Well, a holistic residential community located in Bristol, Vermont.

Public participation will be moderated by Ralph Meima, program director for Marlboro's MBA in Managing for Sustainability, which is co-sponsoring the event in conjunction with Marlboro's Master of Science in Management - Health Care Administration.

Interested parties are asked to RSVP at gradschool.marlboro.edu/h2o. Users can also sign-up there for information about future H2O meetings.
