  • 0:11
    glorious summer and even that Gale it’s given that we’re talking about burnout it’s kind of interesting to have this
  • 0:18
    juxtaposition with the beautiful summer and the idea that one could be burned
  • 0:23
    out to say a few things about Gale and
  • 0:29
    I’m not going to go through the formal bio because you could all read that and I wanted to share a few things that Gale
  • 0:36
    shared with me which I think tell you something about both depth of character
  • 0:42
    and commitment people who are struggling so Gale a volunteer at hospice when she

  • 1:11
    been dedicated to vulnerable populations ever since for all of our medical career
  • 1:18

    doctor well they’re not in hospice and they don’t have Alzheimer’s
  • 1:47
    struggling in a way that wasn’t the case decade is it go and so Gail’s been
