I currently serve as executive director of the Rural and Community Health Institute which serves in a consultative role with hospitals and communities across the state of Texas to facilitate best practices in patient safety, enhanced quality of care, and physician excellence. The Institute was created during her time of leadership at the Health Science Center and exemplifies the importance of translating sound policy into practice not only in traditional academic health centers but across the spectrum of practice sites and care delivery.
