The DMC workgroup
With Liz Baier's story is a list of who attended a working group meeting in April 2010 for what was then called Destination Medical Community . This morning I asked Mayo's DMC administrator Lisa Clarke for the list, since she referred to names in the MPR story. She indicated that she didn't refer to people by name with the reporter, didn't give her the 2010 memo and doesn't know where it came from.
I asked again for the official list. Here's what MPR is reporting , and I'll make notes at the end.

There are 30 names here (not including the observers at the end) and 17 are from Mayo. So we're down to 13 who represent broad-based "community" involvement.
Of those, three are city (and none are from the county), two are Chamber, there's Jon Eckhoff of RDA, Gary Smith of RAEDI and Brad Jones of CVB. That leaves five.
There's the P-B publisher and the KTTC executive...again, P-B and KTTC news were not part of this and at least in the P-B newsroom, we received zero information on DMC from the publisher.
That leaves three to represent the community more broadly, and all are business people closely aligned with the Chamber: Tessa Leung, Norm Doty and Bruce Fairchild.
