I have volunteered with the Outreach Program at Navajo Indian Health Service several times over the past 10 years, and the weeks I have spent there are some of the most rewarding of my professional career. I am humbled and inspired by the remarkable patients and health care providers I have met in Shiprock and Gallup, and I continue to learn more from them than I am ever able to give in return. They have taught me how to be more compassionate, culturally competent, and resourceful. They have modeled how to be patient and resilient. My experiences with the Outreach Program have influenced how I practice as a physician, and who I aspire to be as a person.
