Ron Romero, President
Physician, Packard Health
In my work at Packard Health, a federally qualified health center that directly provides care to Washtenaw Health Plan families, I have the opportunity every day to see firsthand the incredible impact access to high-quality care has on individuals and families. As the child of a single mother who worked multiple jobs, struggled to pay rent, and often had to choose between groceries and medical care, I also feel this impact on a personal level. The knowledge that an organization like Washtenaw Health Project is working hard to ensure that people are treated as human beings worthy of dignity, respect, and equitable healthcare has the power to change lives and communities, fostering belonging, better outcomes, and hope.
