The Story of New Ulm

It’s all going to come down to a group of people:

this school district, this hospital, this group of doctors getting together, and saying, we are sick and tired and we are not taking it anymore.
We are going to make a big social change.
— Dr. David Nash, MN, MBA, Dean, College of Population Health, Thomas Jefferson University
