As Mark tells it, “I saw flaws in the healthcare system that left an indelible mark on my terrifying experience as the parent of a patient. I knew after we took her home that I wanted to fix things, to make them better for other people in similar situations. Thus began a relentless journey to make the healthcare system better, more patient-centered. I have a picture of my daughter in my office to help remind me of the reasons I started on this journey, and to help guide my path forward throughout my career.”
