What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I am passionate about health education so that patients can take an active role in their own health. I believe all people should have a good understanding of health and wellbeing and then know how to apply that understanding to their own lives. I enjoy helping patients become the healthiest they can, and helping them prevent chronic diseases and complications. Preventing and treating disease with lifestyle changes is my overall goal. In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? The goal of a health care provider should be to inform and educate patients so they can understand and be involved in their own health. Preventing and treating disease with lifestyle changes is my goal. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time?
