"My contribution to MGPHO I trust comes from my long participation in NFPA, CSA and ISO, a passion for teaching what I know and can learn, as well as having been a verifier myself back when the whole verification "project" was just getting out of the blocks. MGPHO's contribution to me comes from being privileged to participate with a unique group of experts dedicated to the improvement of patient care through attention to safety and quality in our little part of the huge healthcare beast."
