Episode #17, Segment #3 - DaVita's (Unconventional) Way of Giving

Headquartered in Denver, DaVita Inc. is a Fortune 500 company that provides kidney care, but shows a big heart when it comes to its philanthropy.

The DaVita Way of Giving is a locally-focused charitable giving initative that has provided more than $1.1 million in donations to non-profit organizations across the country.

On this edition of B. Unconventional, DaVita executive Dave Maughan, a Group Vice President, explains how his company's culture and mission fit with its unique style of charible giving.  He is joined by Mindy Davidson, Director of Development with Project Angel Heart, one of the organizations receiving funds as a result of the DaVita Way of Giving.

This is part two of a two-part interview.

Also during this segment:

Money, work, and the economy are significant causes of stress for residents of the Denver metropolitan area, and stress in Denver is still higher than considered healthy, according to a recent survey released by the American Psychological Association.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Stephanie Smith joins Business Unconventional co-hosts David Biondo and Dean Rotbart to discuss the implications of the survey for business owners and employees. Dr. Smith is the co-owner of Front Range Psychological Associates in Erie, Colorado.

This is part one of a two-part interview.
