Ambassador Spotlight

Meet Joy Miller, RN, PNP, our Compassionate Care Clinical Ambassador this month. Joy is a leader for compassionate care as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in Acute Pediatrics. "For these medically complex and fragile children and the families who are facing limiting and life-threatening diseases and illnesses, it is important that the health professional serve as a consistent form of support," Miller says. Through self-care practices and time with friends and family, Miller remains resilient and restored to provide quality care to her patients.
