Compassion - Awareness - Relevance – Experience
Dina Proto, as a healthcare provider, mother, and cancer survivor, lives and breathes the content she delivers. Her workshops are interactive, engaging, informative, and mobilizing.
Dina Proto’s consulting and training approaches do not only consider patients’ physical needs; she also addresses the importance of identity development awareness in diverse, often marginalized populations. She authored her inspiring personal journey and pinpoints stages of growth in Identity Impact: When Society’s Expectations Collide with the Authentic Self

From bedside care to clinical leadership, Dina Proto has a wide array of experience within healthcare and beyond. Her perspectives are inclusive and multi-leveled as they stem from over 20 years of professional and patient support.
