Thursday's Guest: Neal Smatresk

(Dr. Neal Smatresk, president of UNLV, responds to Jim’s recent tweets about research revenue at UNLV.) 
"Im Neal Smatresk, President of UNLV. For years, citizens of Las Vegas and Clark County have complained about our health care. Youve heard the joke, McCarran Airport is the place you go. We need to change that. We need to build a healthy health care supply chain, and thats going to start with basic Biomedical Research, clinical trials, transformational research, and a host of other things that a great research university can bring to a community. We need better medical care. We need to build the infrastructure around healthcare and medical delivery that will make this a great city and that will make it a possibility to have tourists come here for medical tourism and great treatment like they do in other parts of the country and other parts of the world."
