William Gunn, a psychologist, conducts leadership development workshops for family medicine residents at the NH Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency, where he has been a faculty member for 13 years. He holds a clinical appointment at Dartmouth Medical School and is on faculty for the Leadership/Preventive Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Gunn was the principal investigator on a research study of the prevalence of psychological distress in a primary care population, a project funded by the Endowment for Health in New Hampshire. Dr.Gunn is a co-author of Models of Collaboration; a book designed for mental health professionals working in medical settings and has published articles around the integration of behavioral health into primary care. He is also co-author of a book published in 2009 by the American Psychological Association, The Collaborative Psychotherapist. Dr. Gunn is particularly interested in the areas of chronic illness including cancer. He has the experience of being a father of a son diagnosed at 17 years old with lymphoma. This gave him a particularly personal perspective on the struggles family members go through during this process.

Anthony Suchman, MD, MA, FACP is a practicing internist, health services researcher, consultant, and professor of medicine and a leading advocate of Relationship Centered Care. His current work focuses on organizational behavior in healthcare – fostering leadership behavior and work environments that treat staff members in the same way we want them to treat patient and families. He has recently published his second book, Leading Change in Healthcare (co-authored with David Sluyter and Penny Williamson), that presents principles and case studies in Relationship-Centered Administration. He directs the Healthcare Consultancy at the McArdle Ramerman Center in Rochester, NY.
