Cowboys, pioneers, and philanthropists? You bet! Join us for a panel event led by Emmy-winning filmmaker Amanda Kinsey as we discuss her ongoing documentary production Jews of the Wild Westand the role these early Jewish settlers played in healthcare. More than 100,000 Jews migrated to the Wild West before 1912. Many, especially here in Denver, were leaders in giving back to local hospitals treating tuberculosis. Come hear about this fascinating chapter in Colorado history.
