Almost all of the issues that were important this election cycle are on their way to being solved in Boston thanks to BMC: class divisions, health care problems, social safety nets, racial divisions. Their determination to give absolutely everyone world class care even if they are homeless and cannot afford it is something that is not only admirable but also deserves support. The BMC answer is simple: treat every race, creed, and income, keep the costs as low as possible, and continue investing in research and bettering our world. The close proximity of the Boston Medical Center to Roxbury and Dorchester (the two places with the most gang violence in Boston) means that the BMC is constantly full and in need of more staff. I feel it is my responsibility as someone who has been given countless advantages in my life to lend a hand and support those who haven’t been as fortunate. The BMC is one of the best organizations out there for leveling that ground. Please help me support their efforts and my race to the finish.
