The idea of meeting individuals where they are in their communities enables us as healthcare providers to better understand their unique needs and involve them in their care. This allows us to treat the whole person. I joined Millie because I wanted to be part of a community-focused healthcare team. A team that is committed to empowering individuals, providing accessible care, and improving maternity care outcomes.
