C2C is thrilled to announce the newest members of our Board of Directors: Dave Adams and Ruthie Barker. Dave and Ruthie are joining the C2C team as we work toward bringing quality, sustainable primary care to those in need.
Dave is the President of Patriot Urgent Care, LLC, the management company of the AFC Doctors Express Urgent Care centers in Waltham and Burlington, Massachusetts. There he runs day-to-day operations of the company. Prior to launching these medical practices, Dave served as Vice President of Operations at Suffolk Construction following nearly a decade serving as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.
Dave said, “I am very excited about my recent appointment to the Board of Care 2 Communities. C2C does an amazing job of providing high-quality primary health care where it is needed most –in the heart of communities in the developing world. I look forward to supporting C2C by applying some of the knowledge we have gleaned at Doctors Express in the development and operation of retail-based, walk-in urgent care centers throughout the United States. C2C is making a difference in the world and I am honored to be a part of it.”
Ruthie brings a wealth of non-profit experience with her, having worked for more than ten years with the FCD Hazelden Foundation, a global non-profit substance abuse prevention organization, as Client School Coordinator, Conference and Special Workshops Coordinator, and Prevention Specialist. Ruthie now works with a variety of civic and cultural organizations, including the Parents Council of Connecticut College and the Garden Club of America.
Ruthie said, “I was so impressed with C2C’s Founder, Elizabeth Sheehan. During her time as a clinician abroad, she spotted a real need and created a solution that now has the potential to change health care for many. Her idea of refurbishing shipping containers to provide a flexible and respectful place for patient treatment is so great, and the financial sustainability aspect of C2C’s model is so important to me. I am eager to build support for C2C’s vision, and I want to see these clinics helping people all over the world.”
