“I had the opportunity to collaborate with local and national health care leaders to discuss and address challenges facing patients. I am fortunate to have spent time enhancing my executive leadership skills and networking with leaders from other health systems and sectors in the health care industry. It’s inspiring to join forces with such brilliant senior executives from across the state and nation to advance health care.”
