DEM Faculty Receive Banner Endless Possibilities Awards

March 17, 2015

Banner – University Medicine held a welcome reception for faculty at Aloft Tucson University Hotel March 12. Several physicians were selected for “Endless Possibilities” Awards for their spirit of collaboration and leadership.

The “Endless Possibilities" awards come from the practices outlined in the book, "The Art of Possibility." The overall award was “Stepping into a universe of possibility,” with a quote on the award certificate, "In the measurement world, you set a goal and strive for it. In the universe of possibility, you set a context and let life unfold." The leader award was “Leading from any chair,” with the quote, “A leader does not need a podium, she can be sitting quietly on the edge of any chair, listening passionately and with commitment, fully prepared to take up the baton."

Congratulations to Dr. Jarrod Mosier, who received the Endless Possibilities Award, and Dr. Lisa Chan, who was chosen for the Endless Possibilities Leader Award.
