An Entrepreneur in Scrubs: Myles Parilla on WorldBeat (1/3)

Part 3 HERE

Almost two years into the COVID-19 pandemic and Americans can’t seem to catch a break as new variants emerge and policy debates over lockdowns, school closures, and vaccine mandates dominate coverage. It’s pretty daunting for folks on the outside as we struggle to keep up with the breakneck pace of change, but what about the folks on the inside? Popular coverage of healthcare workers has been as hot and cold as leftover lasagna. From being hailed as essential workers and heroes to being demonized as liars and pill pushers and everything in between, it’s important to remember that these people are human. They have thoughts, feelings, and emotional responses to the crisis just like the rest of us, and today we’ll highlight one such worker’s experience in the field and the strategies being implemented to provide quality care both for their patients, and themselves. Former nurse manager and founder of Myles Parilla Consulting Myles Parilla joins WorldBeat to talk about his upbringing in the Philippines, the impact of his father’s entrepreneurial mind on his outlook towards nursing leadership, and his journey through nursing into the leadership consulting world.
