On September 4, 2017, I started my new mission.
As the inaugural Chief Medical Officer of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation ( MPTN), my mission is to help the community achieve better care, and better health, at a lower cost.
At the formal employee orientation, I spent time learning the history
Moving, powerful story of resilience.
This is the largest museum dedicated to native people and culture.
As noted on its website:
The Museum is a 308,000-square-foot complex, consisting of permanent exhibits, the Mashantucket Gallery (a gallery for temporary exhibits), classrooms, a 320-seat auditorium, a restaurant, a museum shop and administrative offices. The Research Center houses collections, archives, and archaeology and conservation laboratories where ongoing work from the field is evaluated and studied.
As I work with the community to improve the health and wellbeing, I have a strong feeling that this wonderful space will play a vital role in the health transformation.
