Why I Work at ICHS:
Because of its vision of healthier people, thriving families, empowered communities and a just society. I work at ICHS because of its commitment to its employees and because the people who work there are committed to service.
Patient Care Philosophy:
An individual’s health and health concerns are partly expressions of the individual’s unique life journey, sociocultural environment and genetic influences. A critical step in the effective delivery of quality health care is the narrative exchange between patient and clinician to understand, temper and/or harness these influences.
Interesting Note About Myself:
The highlight of my travels thus far is hiking the glaciers of Patagonia in Chile.
