Next to Amrien, from left, are panelists Maria Ducharme, chief nursing officer and senior vice president of patient care services at The Miriam Hospital; Care New England CEO Dr. James E. Fanale; and James Rajotte, chief of the Center for Health Promotion in the Division of Community Health and Equity at the R.I. Department of Health. / PBN PHOTO/MIKE SKORSKI
