He shares his own background and experiences as a leader in a variety of settings to help the learner ‘think outside the box’. Danny appreciates the importance of the collaborative synergy of nurse, physician, and administrative leaders, while emphasizing the valuable role of the patient and family in the center of care. He understands the complex nature of healthcare and management, and is able to convey his expertise and passion in a very meaningful way. ”
