"I gear up for public health because of my passion of education. I want to educate not only the adult community, but the younger community, so that we grow up healthier."
"Every day I see trends in data, and I see things we could be doing better at throughout the state, and just, I'm motivated by numbers, just like seeing where we're at and seeing where the disparities are. Analyzing those trends gets me motivated to try and make a difference and try to examine the root cause of some of these problems and hopefully make the state better."
"I am engaged in public health because it's what really matters. . . We spend more on illness care than any other country in the world and yet life expectancy has gone down. Only prevention can help our country become healthier and have a better quality of life."
"How do I gear up for public health? I get really excited to know the partnerships that are being developed and working together to promote a healthier Missouri."
"I think the biggest thing that gears me up is the thought of what kind of a city, what kind of a state, what kind of a world am I leaving for my grandkids."
"When I come to work in the morning, I gear up with my smile. I want to inspire people."
