Great Listen For Aspiring Healthcare Leaders

As a young leader in a large health system, this is an invaluable resource, and I look forward to listening to each podcast. FireSide Chat not only provides relevant education about industry trends, it also provides in depth, executive perspective on how individual organizations are navigating those trends. While the material discussion may change overtime, listening to and learning from the example of these executives will be useful to my professional development for years to come. Thank you Gary Bisbee and Team!
