    Seeing the Van out there in the frigid weather was just one of many reminders of the steadfast commitment you all have to the community.
    The Van, along with your mentorship, has opened my eyes to the centrality of proximity in the fight for health equity—proximity to our clients, to the disparities we strive to tackle, to the solutions we deliver.
    I am very grateful to be a small part of this endeavor.
