Healthcare Risk Management Manager in Chattanooga:
"Life In Risk Management."
As a Risk Manager, the one thing to keep in mind is that you must be flexible. You will make plans for your day and then your day may well take a vastly different direction. It will make report preparation a challenge. It will make organization a challenge.
