Doug delivered the night’s final presentation at Health Talks: Bold Ideas to Transform Health Care, where 10 inspiring speakers, comprising a blend of health care providers and the public, shared their hopes for the health care system using the Pecha Kucha-powered 20 x 20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each). His experience in health care and dedication to improving health care delivery was very evident, and his presentation was timed perfectly as he described his hope: better team work within the health care system.
