Continuing its close ties to the San Jose community,
Palmer’s West campus hosted a Community
Town Hall event with San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo
on Oct. 17.
Other Town Hall panel participants included
West Campus President Bill Meeker, D.C.,
M.P.H., F.P.A.C., and Carl Guardino, president/
CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group
(SVLG). The SVLG is a public-policy business
trade organization that advocates on behalf of
more than 400 prominent Silicon Valley employers
(including Palmer College) on issues, programs
and campaigns that affect the economic
health and quality of life in Santa Clara County.
The Community Town Hall series, coordinated
through the SVLG, features informal discussion
about various socio-economic issues impacting
the Silicon Valley, as well as discussion specific
to the region in which the Town Hall event is
taking place (north San Jose for the event at
Palmer West). The program concluded with a
“Hosting the Town Hall event provided a unique
opportunity to promote the various ways Palmer
impacts the quality of life in the Silicon Valley,
from our campus clinic and network of outreach
clinics, to our broad participation in community
events, such as the Silicon Valley Leadership
Group,” says West Campus President William
Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., F.P.A.C.
The Town Hall was recorded and aired twice as
“The CEO Show” on KLIV-radio (1590-AM).
