“This will not be a rehash of the on-going national health care debate,” said Don Cohen, executive director of The Economic Council of Eagle County. “Thursday’s class will be refreshingly different. Our two panelists are going to offer an insightful and behind-the-scenes look at both the current community health care system in Eagle County and future opportunities to expand and grow services.”

Panelist Suzanne Hoffman-LeBlanc has a background as an engineer, attorney and entrepreneur. As an attorney, she developed an integrated insurance product for the aerospace and aviation industry. She and her husband live in Eagle County and she is the CEO of Vita Prospera Enterprises LLC.

Panelist Jill E. Kovacevich is a non-practicing attorney in Avon. She practiced law in Eagle County for 10 years and since 2001 has been the medical administrator at Doctors On Call, PC in Avon. She has been an advocate for health-care reform and the creation of primary care nonprofits.
