After years of working within a system not designed for persons with complex medical issues and dementia, Dr. Ingram hopes to convince decision makers that health care does not need to be defined by wait lists, and ALC. When approached from the vantage point of the “Art of the Possible,” the future of health care delivery can be one of promise and hope for individuals and economic viability for governments.
