Thank you for sharing that, Mark. Anyone interested in conducting research on health inequity and what good access to healthcare can accomplish, let me know. I'm on the Board of Directors of Brightpoint Health in New York City. We provide healthcare, behavioral healthcare, dental healthcare, integrated care, and support services to over 40,000 New Yorkers who are challenged by poverty, homelessness, drug addiction, and discrimination.

You can email me directly and I will put you in touch with the right people. If you want to learn more about the organization, our website is
