Regarding "The hard work of culture":
What I really liked about the culture article was the connection between talk and action on the chief executive officers part. I could not agree more with the writer. I have found that culture trumps everything else. In a like testament, this organization has grown from a poor hospital that closed to the largest preventive health services agency in the country. The community now has an organization addressing the progression of chronic disease.
