Why He Loves Being a Provider
“I love working with a variety of staff and patients because I get to learn so much from them. I have made several friendships with coworkers who are from different backgrounds than
me. These friendships have provided me with a deep appreciation of their experiences, culture, points of view and have allowed me to view the world around me differently.”
