Prepare to be taken on a journey. With her perceptive view inside the patient experience, Allison Massari’s riveting and insightful story illuminates the immense value that healthcare providers have upon a patient who is suffering. By weaving her remarkable journey with potent life-lessons, Allison highlights the integral nature of patient-centered care and fortifies audience members, reigniting their passion for why they went into healthcare in the first place. She explains, "The power of what you do goes far beyond the technical part of your job. You are healing the places medicine cannot touch. In fact, YOU are the medicine." Hailed as “life-changing,” Allison’s story offers a sincere and direct approach to navigating adversity, transcending life’s difficulties, and always finding a way to be the healer in the room. This content-rich and deeply moving speech also offers applicable tools for managing change, adversity, and the everyday challenges of being human.

National Oral Health Conference and our caring friends at Elevate Oral Care invite you to help today!

We’ve joined Team Feed to help end hunger in America. No one should go without a meal, yet Feeding America estimates over 50 million people in America will face hunger this year. We created this fundraiser to help provide these much needed meals to our neighbors through the Feeding America network of food banks and we’re asking you to join us in our cause.

Every $1 donated helps provide at least 10 meals. It only takes a little to make a big difference.
