I have always said there is power in partnerships. When it comes to health, we cannot operate in silos. We need partnerships and collaboration. When we fight together for health—we win! Thank you and President for having me!

When the health of a community is poor, so is the community’s prosperity. It’s important that we address the upstream social factors that impact our health outcomes like diabetes type 2. That is why I am focused on lifting up community health.
