Memorial Health System in Gulfport, Mississippi recently concluded Women’s History Month with a significant discussion as part of its DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) program.

By actively listening and understanding someone’s perspective, barriers can be broken down, leading to a healthier community with stronger relationships with others.

The panel featured Chief Nursing Officer Mary Brobst, Director of Patient Financial Services Crystal Bowler, Healthcare Accreditation Coordinator Lucinda L’Enfant, and Family Nurse Practitioner Diane Edrington. This marked the third year that the panel was held, with Rosetti noting the program’s expansion and its positive impact on the community.
