We've made the decision to speak with each of them between now and the June Primary. Here, in the second part of our interview with Eddie J.

Mental Health Care in Iowa - Crisis for Business

Early in December there was a political forum which featured twelve of the thirteen people running for governor of Iowa. The event sponsored by the Des Moines Register, Des Moines University and the Iowa Hospital Association drew over 700 people to hear about the delivery of mental health care in Iowa. The conversation, which we live Tweeted, was stunning. Following the event we asked Peggy Huppert from NAMI-Iowa to come in and discuss where Iowa is at when it comes to mental health care, how our care delivery impacts families and business. We think you'll find this enlightening...and a bit scary.

The Largest “Restaurant” in Iowa with Amanda Miller

Leading up to this interview with Amanda Miller we teased that we had discovered the "largest restaurant in all of Iowa and it was right here in Des Moines"! And, we think, it is true. Amanda is the Director of Food & Nutrition Services for the Des Moines Public Schools. We think you will be amazed at how many daily meals they serve, snacks, breakfasts and more. Along with that they take into consideration food allergies, religious exceptions...all while watching a tight budget. It's quite a business and we bet you'll be amazed at the story.
