Dr. Monica & Dr. Danny have been close friends of JAMA for over 20 years. They’ve been married for 25 years. Not only are they great communicators, but their wisdom also comes from deep wells of hardship and suffering. We are so excited that they will share their insights and experience with GLDI alums!
