On our next episode of Amplify Nursing, we talk with Dr. Donte Flanagan. A nurse anesthetist, mentor, and author, Dr. Flanagan is a driven advocate for students of color and those underrepresented and looks to inspire and motivate them in all that he does. Through his foundation Bigger Dreams, Better Tomorrows, and in his new memoir, Dream Big, he shares his experiences with others. Today we talk with him about those dreams, his peripatetic path in the profession, and the importance of representation in healthcare.
