How does one navigate the journey from the ICU as an RN to Chief Executive Officer?

SEMDA Webinar: An interview with Dune Medical CEO Lori Chmura, Medtech Women @ SEMDA 2018 Woman of the Year

“The learning at the ground level is what prepared me for being a CEO,” Lori told SEMDA’s Jason Rupp.

Lori cared for many “firsts” in her tenure as a critical care cardiothoracic ICU nurse at Yale including the first heart transplant patient, first single lung transplant patient and more. The chaos and multitasking responsibilities experienced in that environment prepared her well for the multi-competency requirements of a chief executive.

More specifically, how does an ICU nurse’s responsibilities translate to proficiency in building business cases? From the Yale ICU to Datascope to Medtronic to Dune Medical Devices, watch and listen as Lori shares an inspirational journey from clinical care to CEO of a company seeking to, most immediately, reduce re-excision rates and their unnecessary negative impacts on women facing lumpectomy surgery for breast cancer.



The 2019 SEMDA Medtech Conference is April 8-10 at the Hotel Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia.
