I can remember this experience as if it were yesterday. My baby girl, Deanna, had just turned one a few months prior. The most energetic and happy baby. I had just come out of a meeting with several missed calls from my mom and could not reach her. Turns out that my baby had a medical emergency and so my mom took her to Bowdoin Street Health Center. While she was not a patient at the health center, the care and compassion given to both her and my family, no one would have ever guessed differently. They helped save her life that day! I remember walking out and feeling a sense of relief as they had fully assessed the situation and called an ambulance to transport her to a nearby hospital. Fast forward a year later, I was blessed with the opportunity to work for the health center and have been here ever since. I am committed to my job, our community and our patients. As a lifelong resident of this community, I am fortunate enough to see the impact that we have. Healthy Champions is one of several programs that I oversee and my daughter was healthy enough to particpate. Thanks to Bowdoin Street, Deanna and I are both Healthy Champions.
