Sharing What I've Learned

Learning from others is essential to our professional and personal growth. I feel it is our duty to likewise contribute to the development of others in the field, as both a thank you and a tribute to those who led before us

I have developed the following publications through the Medical Group Management Association as a means to express my gratitude for those who have taught me, and for those who continue to impart their knowledge to help me grow, either directly or indirectly.
