“Having been a Board-certified emergency physician for 20 years I have witnessed many facets of family and friend interactions. I have worked and known Dina for many years and I can’t think of a better person to help bring the “Identity” conversation to the forefront. Not only is she a good nurse but she is a caring, loving and open individual. The acceptance of all people regardless of their beliefs or sexual orientation has to be started as early as possible. An open vulnerable society would only lead to acceptance, tolerance, and love. As a father of a gay son, demonstrating our understanding and tolerance has allowed open honest dialogue, not only in our immediate family but within our circle of friends as well.”– Marc Jeser, Emergency Medical Director Summerlin Hospital
