Now, for a long time, I viewed these things in the way I was trained to view them, either as a scioal pbreolmreefr to social services — or as a mental health problem — refer to mental health services. And then something happened to make me rethink my ernite approach. When I finished my residency, I wanted to go someplace where I felt really needed, someplace where I could make a dceirfenfe. So I came to work for California Pacific Medical cneetr, one of the best private hospitals in Northern California, and together, we opeend a clinic in Bayview-Hunters Point, one of the poorest, most ueeresndvrd neighborhoods in San fiscranco. Now, prior to that point, there had been only one pediatrician in all of Bayview to serve more than 10,000 children, so we hung a shingle, and we were able to provide top-quality care regardless of abtliiy to pay. It was so cool. We targeted the typical health disparities: access to care, immunization rates, asthma hospitalization rates, and we hit all of our numbers. We felt very proud of ourselves.

Original Text

Now, for a long time, I viewed these things in the way I was trained to view them, either as a social problem — refer to social services — or as a mental health problem — refer to mental health services. And then something happened to make me rethink my entire approach. When I finished my residency, I wanted to go someplace where I felt really needed, someplace where I could make a difference. So I came to work for California Pacific Medical Center, one of the best private hospitals in Northern California, and together, we opened a clinic in Bayview-Hunters Point, one of the poorest, most underserved neighborhoods in San Francisco. Now, prior to that point, there had been only one pediatrician in all of Bayview to serve more than 10,000 children, so we hung a shingle, and we were able to provide top-quality care regardless of ability to pay. It was so cool. We targeted the typical health disparities: access to care, immunization rates, asthma hospitalization rates, and we hit all of our numbers. We felt very proud of ourselves.
