Week of December 16th, 2019

"Bring your whole self to work; not only your knowledge and expertise, but also your values. Stay true to who you are and have the courage of your convictions. If you do, you will become an authentic and courageous leader — something intensely needed at this time in healthcare. And you will have the power to change your workplace and the community around you." -Mary Brainerd
