Richard was inspired by the community health center movement, seeking to bring care as close to the community, in partnership with local communities, as possible. His training took him to clinics in rural and urban North Carolina and throughout Central America, South American and East Africa, leaving an indelible impression of how important relationships and trust are in providing health care. Outside of work, Richard finds joy with his two children and wife, and running local trails.
