"I believe that public systems can be tremendously successful and that we have a lot of great resources. I think that each of us in our day, public or private, really needs to bring in the attitude of what an amazing privilege it is to be a part of helping people to be healthier. What an amazing way we get to spend our life. What an amazing mission, whether that’s as a doctor, or a nurse, or an administrator; what an amazing thing it truly is to do."
- Mitchell Katz, MD Director Los Angeles County Department of Health Services
