She visits patients in Acute units, attends patient team meetings, and goes for walks around campus with patients as part of the “walk a hound, lose a pound” program. On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Izzy walked to stomp out stigma with her team from the Hawaii State Hospital at the annual NAMI Walk (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
