The DTE-sponsored Industry Outlook last Thursday was very informative for all who attended. Both business owners and individuals benefitted from the wealth of knowledge shared by healthcare professionals from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Action Health Plus and Altruis Benefit Consulting. Topics that were discussed included healthcare reform and the impact of the new healthcare laws on businesses and individuals. We hope to see you all at our next Industry Outlook!
For the first time ever, Iraqi musicians performed side by side with members of the world’s greatest music ensemble, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra! It was a memorable occasion, with more than 900 in attendance. Old and young alike enjoyed music played on instruments that have been part of the Chaldean culture for thousands of years.
We would like to thank of our sponsors and staff for making this event possible. We hope to see you all next year.
If you are interested in learning more about the new healthcare laws and how they impact businesses and individuals, the September 18 Industry Outlook at Regency Manor & Banquet Hall will be beneficial to you. Rose Grady of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Renee Gruber, J.D. of Action Health Plus and Anthony P.

Project Bismutha’s 2nd Annual Walk-a-Thon
More than 200 community members participated in Project Bismutha’s 2nd Annual Walk-a-Thon at Camp Chaldean on July 20. Guests enjoyed food and drinks and Dr. Herman Kado, a cardiologist, made opening remarking on the benefits on walking and staying active. Other festivities included a raffle, snow cone machine and bounce house for children. Father Pierre hosted a mass followed by lunch. Project Bismutha is a CCF program that provides free health care to uninsured Chaldeans through a volunteer network of physicians who are part of the Chaldean American Association for Health Professionals (CAAHP). It is also funded by community donations.
