This week’s Parallax in collaboration with the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) explores the many ways organisations can embrace the needs of a diverse community and create a culture that can react to the realities of patientcare.

Host Dr Ankur Kalra’s guest is Dr Nancy M. Albert, Immediate Past President of HFSA and Associate Chief Nursing Officer of the Office of Research and Innovation at the Cleveland Clinic.

In this episode, Dr Albert reflects on the society’s work to cater to the needs of its multidisciplinary members. Dr Kalra asks Dr Albert about HFSA vision statement and the different factors that were considered to put words into actions. They discuss the importance of recruiting a diverse group of volunteers. Dr Albert shares her experiences as a mentor and her tips on how to foster talent, including nurses and other advanced practice providers. How can people get involved with HFSA? What mentorship opportunities are available? How has HFSA fostered deeper involvement of early career members? What is Dr Albert’s message to our listeners?
