FROM PATIENT TO BOARD MEMBER
Lance Seay recalls his earliest memory of visiting his now former pediatrician, Dr. Sadiya Asif, who is still practicing with THCC today. Lance has fond memories of Dr. Asif, visiting her after graduating high school (and even after college), which keeps him close to his THCC roots. Lance was exposed to at-risk populations while in college at Ohio University, and eventually became involved in different nonprofits around the Athens, Ohio area. After returning home, Lance pursued an internship in public affairs and landed himself a spot serving on a scholarship board for the Lincoln Heights community. He didn’t want his involvement to end there; in August of 2015, Lance was asked to join the Board of Trustees at THCC. This has expanded his global knowledge of Federally Qualified Health Centers, and allowed him to have opportunities such as traveling alongside THCC’s CEO, Dolores J. Lindsay, to Washington D.C. to advocate for the advancement of THCC and other community health centers throughout the country. Lance is proud to be able to give back to his community.
