Possesses a very positive attitude…

“I was very impressed with Dr. Margarita Gurri. She was definitely a crowd pleaser. She had relevant information, and spiced it up with anecdotes and video. Laughter is definitely healing, and with the different scenarios experienced by our members and families, I believe they all were touched by her presentation. Reintegration is very important to families, and members. I see much upheaval during this process. Having eyes opened to the fact that it is not a honeymoon period, but a difficult time for some, puts the families and members at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Gurri for future events. She possesses a very positive attitude that is contagious! This helps to get the program off on the right foot, and encourages members to attend her break out sessions.”
