“I am immensely grateful for the opportunity USC and CALA have given me to attend this prestigious multidisciplinary program. In my current role, I facilitate frequent trainings with frontline staff, and I believe having a wider breadth of knowledge in this area will help make that training more effective. I also hope to use my education to better support the managers I mentor on clinical and programming challenges. ”
