Fletcher Allen Health Care was rocked by financial scandal less than a decade ago, and as it emerged from that cloud Dr. Melinda Estes was named CEO. After eight years leading Vermont's largest hospital she steps down this month, and we look back on how FAHC has changed during her tenure. We talk with Estes about electronic medical records, the impact of Vermont and national health care policy changes, how Fletcher Allen has improved it's facilities and technology, and what challenges lie ahead for the next CEO.

Also in the program, Vermont Law School is reopening its campus to military recruiters after a 26-year ban. Dean Jeff Shields explains the policy was a response to the military barring gays and lesbians from employment, and now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is ending, so is Vermont Law School's policy.

And we head to Summer School! This week, we get a lesson in how to talk like an auctioneer from Tom Broughton, who leads estate sales at his auction barn in Bridport.
