It’s been more than a year since the pandemic first began. And while we see a lot of changes now compared to the first wave of Coronavirus, it’s important to realize that it’s not yet over.
Today Beverly talks to Dr. Leeroy Moyo, one of the frontline doctors fighting the war against COVID-19. After working his way through medical school, he became a physician who, for the past eight years, has taken care of hospitalized patients. At present, he’s Chief Hospitalist in the St. Joseph’s Healthcare System.
Dr. Leeroy left Zimbabwe and graduated from the University of Miami before starting his work as a hospitalist.
Dr. Leeroy and Beverly have a deep conversation about how challenging it is to be part of the health care industry. Beverly also expresses her gratitude to those heroes we may not have noticed before but who are, nonetheless, a really great help in our everyday lives.
In this episode, you’ll find out:
- The importance of having a plan.
- The challenges Dr. Leeroy faced during his schooling and in his employment journey, and how he overcame them.
- The future of healthcare and what you need to know moving forward.
- The way Dr. Leeroy trusts his passion about healthcare management and how he looks to the future (it’s what made him what he is now).
These days, Dr. Leeroy also teaches others to trust the process. There will always be times when things go wrong, but there will also be days you will figure things out and you’ll be glad that you didn’t give up.
Dr. Leeroy’s tips to be successful in the health care field include:
- Set up a vision of what you want to become and how you want to achieve it
- Write down how you want to see yourself in the next five to ten years
- Take risks and love what you’re doing
