      and what Alan believes most people should strive to
      improve. This includes scanning surroundings to point
      out something that is out of place. In this age of digital             SUSAN
      communications, the biggest obstacle to focused awareness
      can be a person’s smartphone.                                          GABRIELLE

      to training materials used in the course. “If he had simply            Direct: 561-445-4483
