Today we’d like to introduce you to Cheri Davis, supervisor of medical staff services at the Lakeland Regional Medical Center in Lakeland, FL.

When and why did you join the field?
I joined the field in 2006. I was hired as a supervisor of a medical staff office that was credentialing 700 practitioners. The IRB coordinator position was just another piece of the job.

Why did you join PRIM&R?
I became a member to gather more information and meet people doing the same job as myself.

What motivates you to maintain your commitment to advancing ethical research?
