"By staying inside, I’m limiting the contact they have with others and lower their risk of getting sick. By staying inside, I’m able to talk to patients on the phone to ease their frustrations and anxieties surrounding the whole situation. By staying inside, I’m keeping myself safe so that I can continue to serve my patients."

"To me, Paige is a reminder of many things: that the barriers to good health that individuals face are real and damaging and constantly reinforced by society and those in power, that organizations like Birmingham, and the rest of the NHC host sites, although they are underfunded and understaffed, can provide people with small but effective ways to overcome these barriers, and that resilience, kindness, and optimism, although they may be at times hard to find, are what we need most."

"A lot of my time this service year has been spent thinking about questions like these. For instance, partaking in this AmeriCorps service year is an experience that lends itself only to candidates who are privileged enough to either have the savings or help to live on a governmental stipend. My fellow members and I talked briefly about this during our training, but this is something I’ve grappled with since."
