    What do we stand for at DLRI?

    What do we believe in at DLRI?  Why do we do what we do?  How do we make decisions about our areas of priority?  How do we deal with the conflicts that arise inevitably in time available and learner requests, government reports, preceptor payments, housing and transportation leases or expense reimbursement? 

    This is what we come back to on a daily basis.... this is our focus.....
