"Improving access to care, especially to under-served communities in need, is a deeply rooted passion of mine. What drew me to 2020 On-site was the commitment we have made to Boston Public Schools. When kids see better, they perform better in school and have a stronger opportunity to succeed. It is my hope that these visits help improve the quality of life of the children we see, and also serve as an opportunity for young minds to connect with positive role models in the healthcare field so that they can see differently, and think bigger about their future dreams and aspirations."
