In 1970 a young college student, while serving an internship in a social change group at the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay, researched various human services and identified a gap in the availability of medical services for a large group of people.

Her assigned focus was to change an existing health care delivery system to reach them. She found this to be impossible and convinced the professors and her fellow students to allow her to shift focus enough to create an alternative health care delivery system.
