A Welcome from Our Board of Trustees Chair
While serving as chair of The FDHA Board of Trustees, I will focus on improving access to care and disease prevention. This is critical for the underserved community. It will not matter that we have a state-of-the-art health care system, if those in need cannot access care. By promoting preventative care we will be able to impact morbidity and mortality in this demographic. I hope that community leaders from all fields will join The FDHA in our desire to increase access to care and health equity for all community members.
