Providence St. Joseph Health. Caring for the vulnerable

{This is a sponsored post}


I recently had the opportunity to interview Rosie Perez, senior vice president of Mission Integration. As a Texas native and results-focused leader, her mission is to care for the poor and vulnerable. Her passion for helping those in need led her to become a nurse and eventually led her to take on the role as a mission leader at Providence St. Joseph Health.

I asked her a few questions about her inspiration, and how she brings awareness to issues she encounters in the healthcare industry.


1. What was your inspiration?
Many different things or events have inspired me in life. I have been inspired by my family, particularly by my mother who sacrificed a lot to make sure I had what I needed to succeed in school to become a nurse.

I became a nurse because of the nurse I saw in the free public health clinic for the poor. Seeing how she provided compassionate care for her patients made me want to help others, too. I am inspired by the religious women who founded our health system and their love of God and their ingenuity in serving the poor and vulnerable for over 160 years. I am most inspired by the communities we serve. When a group of people come together with few resources to create a positive change to improve the health of their communities or to advocate for a better quality of life for their families, it just makes me want to do more, do better in helping others.

David's Law. End Cyberbullying

{This is a sponsored post}


David’s Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending cyber and other bullying, of children and teens, through education, legislation, and legal action. With the launch of the David’s Legacy Pledge campaign, one of their goals is to bring awareness and support to David’s Law, a new law that protects Texas children by treating cyberbullying offenses as misdemeanors and establishing new channels of communication to report these criminal acts to law enforcement through their schools

I recently had the opportunity to ask Maurine Molak, David's mother, about David's Legacy Foundation and how other's can get involved with combating cyberbullying.

In what ways do you inspire both children and adults to promote kindness within their community?
I use David's story to encourage young people and adults to always remember that there is a soul behind every screen, a username with feelings, so we should treat them as we would want to be treated, with kindness.
