I’m a healthcare system implementation consultant and a long-time volunteer for Alameda County Public Health Department. In my capacity as public health volunteer I organized the largest and longest running health fair in the country for state prison inmates. I earned my Master of Public Health and Master of Business Administration degrees from University of California Berkeley in 1991. I joined Physicians and Patients Reclaiming Medicine (PPRM) because I value the sanctity of the provider-patient relationship and am concerned it’s in jeopardy. PPRM is a strong force against unprincipled interference in the provider-patient relationship and for this reason I am a dedicated PPRM member.
