What She Hope to Gain:

I enjoy learning to expand my knowledge and enhance my skills. I believe that the TNI training will enrich my teaching and interactions for emotional development, growth, and processing with students, residents, fellows, staff, and colleagues. Integrated care supports patient-centered care and TNI training allows the opportunity to facilitate training with colleagues from multiple disciplines to further develop this knowledge in those who participate in this training experience.
