#WeAreHealthcare: Understanding and Reconnecting to Purpose with VCU Health System

As we start to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, understanding and reconnecting to purpose, rediscovering our why is key to moving forward. The health care workforce is facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities to redefine care delivery and encourage the next generation of leaders to use the lessons of the last two years to change for the better. Dr. Tom Yackel, President of MCV Physicians, the faculty practice plan of VCU Health System, senior associate dean for clinical affairs in the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, and past chair of the AHA’s Committee on Clinical Leadership sat down with Elisa Arespacochaga, vice president of clinical affairs and workforce at the AHA Annual meeting to share his thoughts as a clinical leader and practicing physician.
