Week in Review: Week of May 27, 2019

May 31, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

Over the past few days at Headlines, readers got a closer look at the power of employees working together.

The week started with a rundown of the newly-created Diabetes Care Model, which brings a multidisciplinary team together to enhance patient care. Faculty and staff also learned how a heart patient benefited from the work of an entire team — from “the surgeons to the cardiologists, electrophysiologists, nurses and medical assistants” — and the newsletter recapped the recent Leadership Summit for Women, which allowed more than 400 professionals to learn from one another and gain skills that will help them advance in their career.

Here’s the latest!
