On the Healthcare Experience: “I recently had an accident that required an ED visit. My experience reminded me how important it is to see through the lens of patients and families and to communicate with caring. Whether caregivers provided care directly or indirectly, the caring in their interactions was so important. At first uncertain and fearful, I could feel my anxiety decrease when I felt their compassion and caring. I’m in awe of people who thrive with kindness despite their own struggles.” 

Favorite Quote: “When we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection—or compassionate action.”  – Daniel Goleman
