With the current state of the economy both in the Commonwealth and across the nation, it is imperative that local, state and national leaders begin looking for new and realistic means by which to meet the healthcare needs of citizens. This week, Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo will confront those issues as well as present on healthcare developments in Kentucky as a participant in the annual Milbank Memorial Fund Healthcare Policy meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Milbank Memorial Fund, which aims to bridge the gaps between healthcare and public policy, was founded at the turn of the 20th Century as a means to connect healthcare leaders from across the country and increase public and private access to the latest emerging developments in health technologies. Since the Fund’s inception in 1905, it has been a nonpartisan leader in educating the public through research, reports and publications, including their quarterly magazine, The Milbank Quarterly.

“Kentucky is leading the way in many innovations in healthcare technologies and practices, and I am honored to have the opportunity to share with other healthcare leaders about our developments here in the Commonwealth,” said Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo.

The annual meeting of the Milbank Memorial Fund is an interactive, inclusive conference that encourages the exchange of new and innovative ideas and information. The Milbank Fund sponsors the cost of all program participants. For more information about the Milbank Memorial Fund, please visit
