" Over my 30+ years in the healthcare industry and 15 years teaching at two Universities, I have assembled quite a large body of tested lecture material and tools. I often dreamed of the possibility of offering this large body of knowledge at a reasonable price to those who are just coming up through the ranks or those who could not afford a classic University education ... The time to make that dream come true is now. "
