“Every member of the team has a different perspective and interacts with patients and their families differently,” Baron-Lee says. “So each orientation has a different window into the lives and experiences of their patients from across the continuum of care.”

Prior to joining Shepherd Center, she was the Quality Officer in the Neuromedicine Interdisciplinary Academic & Clinical Program (NICAP) at the University of Florida Health.
