“These types of shifts don’t scare me”

Dr. Danielle Scheurer is the President of the Society of Hospital Medicine & a practicing Hospitalist. She took office right at the start of the #Covid19 pandemic & has skillfully navigated this critical organization (I am a proud SHM member, full disclosure) through the first part of the pandemic. We discuss the need for agility, growing SHM while under tremendous pressure, and leveraging decentralized engagement. Absolutely fascinating from a great leader.
