Why is this area of study important at this point in time?
Healthcare is a dynamic and ever-changing environment. To be able to adapt and successfully navigate such a dynamic entity, study is needed to achieve the best patient outcomes. The ability to work with academics and future leaders is the foundation to improving care and developing successful models of delivery to meet the needs of our at-risk patient populations.
What called you to or attracted you to Loyola?
The spirit of servant leadership that is exhibited by our students, faculty, and staff was a major selling point that aligned with my personal and professional goals. It is exhibited daily in almost every interaction I have been a part of at Loyola. Additionally, the ability to give back to an institution that has given me so much is something that I honor and cherish.
