Young Adults Crossing the Threshold from Pediatric to Adult Healthcare

How can we be good hosts to young adults as they cross the threshold from pediatric to adult healthcare? (more…)

As an action catalyst, I empower people traveling together toward best health (people as patients, caregivers, parents, clinicians, direct care staff, communities, and the people that support them). I wear many hats in healthcare:

  • Patient with Multiple Sclerosis
  • Care partner for several family members’ end-of-life journeys

  • Informaticist
  • QI leader
  • Husband, Father, Opa, Musician

I specialize in patient/ caregiver/ clinician/ community relationships and the intersection between technology and the health journey.
