By Chief Medical Officer James Schultz M.D.in honor of National Health Center Week
I became a doctor because I wanted to help alleviate the suffering of others. For 13 years, I worked in a private medical group doing interesting and challenging work. But I became restless. I felt that I ought to be working as a doctor in some remote part of the world helping people who had no care and no options. I guess I felt I had a calling … a sense of faith-based mission.
