As a recently retired leader in military health care and as the former Commander of 1 Health Services Group, I have a keen interest in leadership, policy and resource management. Leadership in health care, both under normal circumstances and during times of increased stress are particular interests of mine. I am keen to share my experience and to continue to learn from those who continue to work in the field.
