It cer­tainly was great to have the ex­po­sure. But it’s not about an in­di­vid­ual ef­fort. It’s about an or­ga­ni­za­tion, a team that I was able to work with and accomplish many things.

I was a mav­er­ick. I knew it. There were many other friends who were on this track in great places … but we were still pretty much out­siders and pretty much bring­ing a mes­sage that was a lit­tle dis­si­dent. To have the kind of en­cour­age­ment that your award gave me, that was mean­ing­ful. It said, “OK, keep at it. Keep go­ing. You’re on a track here that’s valu­able.”

I still am in touch with some of the peo­ple (in my class) who are all do­ing won­der­ful and re­ally im­por­tant things in health­care. Ev­ery time you can build a group of col­leagues who can be re­sources and you can reach out to—I don’t think I’ve ever solved a sin­gle prob­lem alone. The way that we solve them is by pulling in the best think­ing of peo­ple that we’ve been ex­posed to. This recog­ni­tion gave me a broader network of very im­por­tant and ac­com­plished col­leagues.
