I have a job that doesn’t feel like a job at all…..shhhh….. but don’t tell my boss! I support members of the Midwest Cancer Alliance
while they improve care coordination and survivorship services in their communities.
In my consulting work and as an active member of social communities via LinkedIn
, I receive many emails from CEOs, physicians, navigators, care coordinators and transition nurses of all specialties across the region and country.
