“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”
Robin S. Sharma
Dr. Sandra Garrett is passionate about listening to “the voice of the patient”. When she accepted a faculty appointment at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas, she immediately applied for and was awarded a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services to study methodologies for enabling health professionals to treat patients more humanistically. This research layed the foundation for studying such phenomena as White Coat Hypertension and how patients’ interactions with health care providers can have a profound effect on physiologic states such as blood pressure and heart rate.
