The guest in this episode of The Health Leader Forge is Susanna Fier, the Vice President of Public Affairs and Marketing for the Elliot Health System in Manchester, New Hampshire. Susanna made a mid-career transition from law to healthcare. Prior to coming to the Elliot, she worked as an attorney specializing in civil litigation, arguing cases all the way to the state supreme court.
In this podcast Bonica and Fier talk about how she became a lawyer, what it was like to be represent clients in court, and then how her prior experience helps her do her job today as a member of the senior leadership team in the Elliot Health System. Susanna explains how she manages communications, both internally and externally, her relationship with the press, and how she prepares members of her organization to interact with the press themselves.
