(Randi with a horse named Hope)
Bio: Randi Redmond Oster is the author of Questioning Protocol, an award-winning book about navigating the healthcare system as she advocated for her chronically ill son in the hospital. She is also the President of Help Me Health, where she helps healthcare organizations transform the patient experience.
Beyond the bio: When my son underwent multiple operations from Crohn’s disease, I discovered cracks in the healthcare system. When my book was published, the hospital implemented many of my ideas. I have seen how the power of positive intention can make what seems impossible become reality.
What makes you a grown-ass lady? I listen, learn, and then lead. I value input from different perspectives and am able to bring people together to implement plans that are fair for all.
