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 spotlighting Trinity Health Center Volunteer, Priscilla Porter. A member of Brown Missionary Baptist Church, Priscilla has been involved with Trinity Health Center since its early planning discussions.
Why did you become involved with Trinity Health Center?
I became involved with Trinity Health Center because I am passionate about healthcare and felt that I could make a difference by assisting others with their healthcare and non-healthcare needs. I was inspired during my time of taking care of family members and saw the importance of having people available to assist with navigating the healthcare system. I also know what it is like to be underinsured or uninsured and have to deal with the stress of not having the money to seek medical attention. I believe that Trinity Health Center will be the helping hand that so many in our community need.
What excites you most about Trinity Health Center's mission and purpose?
Providing quality healthcare to patients who are underinsured and uninsured in the community such as primary care, physicals and wellness checks.
What are some of your favorite places in our County to enjoy a healthy lifestyle?
Olive Branch YMCA, Olive Branch City Park, Papa Murphy’s salads
What is your favorite quote or bible verse?
“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 NLT
We are so thankful for Priscilla's involvement with Trinity Health Center.
