Why I work with HCM
As a Teen Mentor, I get to see first hand the difference education and quality health care can make in the lives of individuals. Being part of a team that is dedicated to advancing both issues gives me the satisfaction of knowing that I am pursuing both my passions and fulfilling my purpose as a member of society: making the world a better place.
