The newest subject of the Women's Health Leadership TRUST Member Spotlight is Diane Nanstad, Population Health Strategy Executive at Cerner Advisory Services. She aligns her clients' population health and value-based care strategies to help them create value, maximize growth and improve their business performance. She asks herself, “What is my client’s current state, and what are their future state goals for their patients, members and community? How can they better manage their population inside and outside of the brick and mortar of their hospitals and clinics?"

Diane explains the best career advice she's received. "Early in my health care career a leader told me, 'Diane, when you’re green you’re growing and when you’re not you’re rotten.' My interpretation was that I can always find room for improvement — and the day I start to coast and think I have this job nailed, I will no longer be successful. As a result I started to compete with myself, worked to lead by example, share what has worked for me and my strategies for success with my team and colleagues.

"I have taken this to heart throughout my career and published an article on LinkedIn where I talk about how I have incorporated this into my teamwork: Compare Your Teamwork to Your Coworkers. Are You a 'Me' or a 'We'?"

Diane was recently elected to the TRUST Board of Directors. She has served on several TRUST committees, including the Membership Committee and the planning team for the TRUST's inaugural fall retreat.
