In an effort to share the faces behind our organization before we open this August with our community, we're shining a spotlight on our Planning Team, Volunteers, and Board Members who have worked tirelessly to get Trinity Health Center open to provide health and healing to the working uninsured and underinsured neighbors in DeSoto County.
This week, we're thrilled to spotlight our Board Member, Dr. Vivian Lo.
Why did you become involved with Trinity Health Center?
My friend Vance Daly, who is also on the board, approached me about my interest in participating. I was ecstatic. I have always volunteered and contributed back into the community in where I work and live. This is the perfect way for me to serve by combing my love for volunteering and medicine. All the Glory to God for blessing me with this great opportunity.
What excites you most about Trinity Health Center's mission and purpose?
The underserve population in our county deserves the right to health care just like everyone else. Being able to provide that will benefit so many people in our community. I feel blessed to be part of this organization.
What are some of your favorite places in our County to enjoy a healthy lifestyle?
Healthy lifestyle comes with making healthy life choices. Walking at least 30 mins a day is the bare minimum that I strive for, if I’m not at work. Ordering a healthier option when I go out to eat is another conscious choice to make. I support all local businesses. In Hernando, I love LadyBugg and Bazar. I love to walk down the trails around my house. One of my new favorites is the Johnson Creek green trail.
What is your favorite quote or bible verse?
Isaiah 41:10 - God strengthens you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. God has promised us His strength. He will never give you a trial you are unable to handle.
