Florida Forum Speaker Series to welcome Mike Krzyzewski


Posted

JACKSONVILLE – The Florida Forum Speaker Series, presented by The Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s Hospital, will welcome Duke University’s “Coach K” – Mike Krzyzewski – on Wednesday, Nov. 8. The program begins at 7 p.m. at the Center for the Performing Arts in Jacksonville. 

The passionate, dynamic and inspiring coach of Duke’s men’s basketball team, Krzyzewski is the NCAA Division 1 men’s all-time leader for wins with 1,200 games in the W column. Coach K’s success includes 35 NCAA tournament appearances, 13 Final Fours and five National Championships over 46 seasons as a head coach. He also coached the U.S. men’s national basketball team from 2005 to 2016, leading Team USA to three Olympic gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016. 

Coach Krzyzewski is the first of three events offered by the Florida Forum Speaker Series. Future programs include entrepreneur Steve Wozniak on Jan. 17, and retired U.S. Navy Adm. James Stavridis on Feb. 26. 

Funds raised by the Florida Forum support the Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s Hospital’s commitment to raise $1.5 million for two new Kids Kare Mobile Intensive Care Units, part of Wolfson Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal and Pediatric Critical Care Transport fleet, including necessary life-support equipment for the transportation of critically ill and injured infants and children.
