The audience will learn how to lead with purpose and align the organization with its mission and vision.
The audience will learn how to co-create structures that foster truly person-centered care where we don’t check all the boxes, but instead, where the person is not a box to be checked.
Social Impact and Policy
The audience will learn how to develop a community-oriented vision of the future where we ask not what our community does for us, but what we will do for our community to counter loneliness and therefore fight fascism.
Coaching & Consulting
I will work with you directly to help you to discover your authentic voice while understanding your deepest-held philosophies. My focus centers on envisioning the impossible, in coalition with others, while centering your own authentic self.
My primary expertise focuses on organizational development, social impact, and co-creating movements that foster purpose and meaning.
“Thank you, Dallas, for being a role model for clinicians, entrepreneurship, and human kindness. Your clinic is built with the compassion and respect that all patients deserve and that everyone should receive. You are making a difference in so many lives. Your work reminds me of a favorite quote by Barack Obama: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
– Sherrie P., DNP Student
“We absolutely loved your conversation! Know that your thoughts carried immediately into our conversations with our specialties! Our cohort had an amazing huddle about grass roots healthcare, fostering community, and taking active steps to find common ground with patients who may look different and have different views than us as providers! I cannot wait to graduate and to break down the bureaucracy of American healthcare, and take my part in rebuilding places where everyone feels safe and heard, just like you painting the walls of Transhealth! May your light shine even in the darkest places.”
