Tell us what motivates your involvement at ACHC *
As a primary care physician in Ashland, I recognized many years ago that there were many people in Ashland who were not being properly cared for medically because of a lack of medical insurance and finances. I was delighted to partner with a number of likeminded people from Ashland that recognized that need as well and worked with them to develop a health center. Three things that get me excited about ACHC are its focus on holistic care, maintaining the dignity of our patients, and seeing this as a way to live out our Christian faith.
How does your faith guide you in your daily life, and while serving ACHC?
I realize that everything I have and everything I am is because of God’s grace. I could go into detail but it is enough to say, “Every.Thing.” So as I look at people, many of whom have made bad choices in their lives, for some that is why they are at ACHC, I do not look at the choices as a moral failure but as a seeking for life. I have a message for them that I can first show and then tell, that life is found in my dear friend, Jesus Christ.
