WBENC SEP - Compassionate Healthcare with Wambi

“Alex Coren grew up spending a significant amount time in hospitals due to her parent’s chronic illness. When she was 21-years-old, she became the Director of Patient Experience in an in-patient setting, where she started to notice the large disconnect between patients and providers.”
