We Honor Elizabeth Scala, MSN/MBA, RN, a Johns Hopkins-trained registered nurse, author, speaker, and consultant on burnout prevention for nurses in all specialties. Elizabeth is also a Reiki Master Teacher and Certified Coach.
Individuals typically enter their careers with a desire to provide compassionate, heart-based care. Challenged by regulations, financial pressures and technological advancements, today’s healthcare professional struggles to balance the art with the science of practice. Elizabeth inspires nursing teams to reconnect with the passionate and fulfilling joy that once called them to their roles.
We Honor Lenny Achan, Chief Innovation Officer, Manhattan's Hospital for Special Surgery, is a master of the left and right sides of the brain-a life long artist rooted in graffiti and a nurse turned healthcare executive and entrepreneur.
