Arthur Fountain, Board Member of Los Medanos Community Healthcare Distriict
I believe it is every community member's duty to give back to their community in any way they are able. LMCHD's mission to offer solutions to the health disparities in the district, is a broad and diverse objective which offers the potential to contribute to the common good of our community, in a way that is measurable.
My work experience has been in managing customer-centric retail and service oriented businesses. I have served on the boards of several 501(3c) organizations.
My short term goals are to work with the board to improve the infrastructure with specific focus on communication, openness and transparency. My long term goals are to work with the board to improve the health disparities of the LMCHD.
I believe LMCHD’s greatest strengths are its citizen volunteers and non-profit agencies which provide the services which are helping to mitigate the health disparities in our community.
My greatest concern that LMCHD may be swallowed up by bigger and more powerful entities. To prevent this we must proactively communitcate with our constituants and partners to ensure they understand our objectives, methods, and outcomes.
