About

"I am the hospital epidemiologist at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. In that role, I work to prevent healthcare-associated infections and to increase patient safety. In addition, I am interested in patient-clinician communication and patient’s stories. My book, Patient Listening: A Doctor’s Guide, grew out of a sabbatical during which I explored patients’ stories."
