Why do you volunteer in the community? Simply put, to make the community better. To give back and contribute to society beyond my personal self-interest.

How does healthcare support a thriving community? Healthcare is extremely important to a healthy and happy community. When your health, or worse, access to healthcare, is limited, the community suffers and is held back.

How is gratitude different than being thankful? Being thankful is just common courtesy. Being grateful is an expression of tremendous care, love and thankfulness. It's longer and self-sustaining.
