Benfield said graduates will help write the next chapter in health care.

Benfield also discussed the role of technology in health care and encouraged graduates to ěremember that technology is a means to an end; never let technology replace the human element.î
In closing, she challenged the graduates to keep a studentís spirit by always being a listener; to learn from everyone they meet; and to treat each patient and encounter as if their passing or failing depended on it.
