Presented by:
  • Dr. Cynthia Sweeney
  • Jodie McGinley

The DAISY Foundation is known the world over for its hospital-based programs that recognize compassion and excellence in nursing. During this webinar, Dr. Cynthia Sweeney, Vice President for Nursing at The DAISY Foundation will explain exactly why meaningful recognition and gratitude matter so much to families and caregivers, and share the results of a recent study that examined this very question. She’ll be joined by Jodie McGinley, whose own journey of loss and gratitude informs her role as Parent on Staff at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Together they will explore how gratitude positively impacts individuals as well as healthcare delivery, and highlight the value proposition of saying “thank you.” Following their presentation, Cindy and Jodie will be joined in conversation by Schwartz Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Beth Lown.
