Today I’m talking with Robyn Diaz, Chief Legal Officer of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. A native New Yorker, Robyn’s path to success in health law began when she moved to Washington D.C. and worked for a non-profit, The Whitman Walker Clinic. While there, she attended Georgetown Law. After law school, Robyn spent a few years at a law firm where she advised health industry clients on compliance and regulatory issues. She made the move in-house when she took a job with MedStar Health. As you will hear her describe, Robyn wasn’t sure she had the experience necessary for the role at the time. But, she was eager to learn and rose to the occasion when the duty to serve her new clients called. Robyn has been with St. Jude for over 10 years now but her practice continues to grow and evolve. Her journey is an admirable one and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did.
