Mary J. Martell: Vital Signs and Words: Inspiring a Culture and Community of Health

Mary J. Martell has been involved in health care for much of her career; for the past 14 years as the Director of Research Services for Stormont Vail Health in Topeka, KS. Mary is the Chairperson for the Stormont Vail Health Cultural Ambassadors, and along with a group of 16 organizational professionals, has worked to cultivate a successful organizational culture. Over the past three years,  the group has researched, developed and implemented programs and movements based on literature, evidence, and good old-fashioned creative thinking.

In this talk, Mary will discuss one of these programs, the “Words of the Moment” program, which examines the the power of a single guiding word in everyday life, in the healthcare community, and in the community at large.
