The episodes released so far feature insights from Ewa Panetta, manager of patient safety & quality at the MHA Keystone Center; Jacqueline Thomas-Hall, system director of diversity and inclusion for Beaumont Health, Southfield; Laura Appel, the MHA’s senior vice president and chief innovation officer; Rami Khoury, MD, FACEP, medical director of emergency medicine at Henry Ford Allegiance Health, Jackson; and Paige Fults, director of advocacy at the MHA.
