Episode 4: Tomás León on Rising to the Occasion

Speaker: Tomás León

  • Duration: 10 minutes

Dan sits down with healthcare advocate and UOPX alum Tomás León to discuss what he’s seeing in his industry, what he wishes to see in American business, and the personal story that led Tomás here.

Show Notes :

Tomás’ story is an inspiring one. He grew up in a disadvantaged neighborhood. Family support and personal tenacity propelled Tomás to be the first in his family to graduate college, then grad school.

It comes full circle with his current role; he’s a leader in an innovative healthcare company focused on equal care for all.

In this episode of How Tomorrow Works, Dan and Tomás discuss diversity and inclusion as a business imperative, America’s broken healthcare system and improving your circumstances with education. And of course, we hit our guest with the lightning round, How Tomás Works.

The discussion becomes all the more impactful when seen through the lens of Tomás’ real experiences, so definitely take a listen. And join us next week for another episode of How Tomorrow Works. Dan’s sitting down with UOPX nursing instructor Connie Houser.

I think we’re having very difficult conversations right now. And this is a time for growth. It’s a time for change. But you really have to listen to understand the experiences of your workforce, the experiences of community members, in order for you to understand what needs to be changed and how to change it.”
