MEET A CRUSADER: Cain Hayes is a 1987 graduate of Lutheran North who coincidentally, lived across the street from campus during his time as a student.
Today, he's the President and CEO of Gateway Health and is sharing how health involves more than just physical care – it involves financial, mental, emotional, and social needs, as well. All of those needs must be addressed to build healthy communities.
