INNOVATOR PROFILE

CHARLENE RADDI

Area of Expertise: Health

"We do look up a lot to our grandparents and to the elders, so being a part of the health-care team and my position, our elders know that we do look up to them a lot. Whenever I walk onto the unit and spend time with our elders, it just reminds me of my grandparents and how we were raised."
