My AFHU LEAD Program Mentorship Experience
By Daniel J. Leizman, M.D.
As a component of the AFHU LEAD program, Dr. Myles Krieger graciously volunteered to serve as my Mentor. I could not be more delighted. First meeting half-way between Miami and Boca Raton over lunch, we both brought a passion for AFHU and commitment to the mentorship process. Myles and I have some career similarities having both attended the same college and being physicians. However, the reason why our mentorship relationship is so successful is that, from the get-go through Myles’ prompting, we both committed to authentic, open communication within the confines of a protected relationship. This very rapidly has allowed us to get to know each other personally and develop a dynamic working relationship as we offer service and support to AFHU. I am blessed to be the benefactor of Myles’ wisdom, experience, and affability. Hopefully, I too contribute to the relationship by bringing fresh perspective, creativity, and candor. We have enjoyed interacting at the ALEF weekend in Palm Beach introducing our family and friends to each other, working together on AFHU Southeast Region development, and through video meetings and the like since the onset of the pandemic. I look forward to much more with Myles virtually, locally, and in Jerusalem!
