One of my teaching philosophies is "teach one, reach one and they will lead".  As a leader in the field of health care, one of my goals is balancing the physical, mental and emotional well-being of the human race.  My general focus is health equity and equality among communities, especially among disadvantaged populations.  One component of this objective is to ensure that all citizens are fully educated and aware of proper and proficient health care practices and increased wellness activities, ensuring better outcomes for building healthier communities.  In order to meet this challenge, educators and institutions must train and produce the best and brightest health professionals that can supply quality care delivery and support services to empower communities to secure great health.  As an educator, my purpose is to further create other agents of change to cultivate communities in order to transform the personal lifestyles and outcome measures for better health .
