Q: When considering Mosaic’s future, what are you most excited for?

“In the future I am most excited to see Mosaic reinforce work with the School-Based Health Centers and underrepresented groups while maintaining sustainability and quality.”

Q: What are you most proud of that the organization has accomplished in the past 20 years?

Q: If you could tell the community one thing about Mosaic, what would it be?

“The care at Mosaic stacks up against any in the area. There’s a reason I have my children at Mosaic. The quality is there, in addition to the coverage.”

Chandra Atwood: Chandra has been a patient representative on the Mosaic board for four years and is the current board secretary.

Q: When considering’s Mosaic’s future, what are you most excited for?

Q: What are you most proud of that the organization has accomplished in the last 20 years?

“I am proud that Mosaic’s mission is always evolving (like adding dental care), as well as our mindset of reaching every community and every person in the community and providing them with comprehensive care.”

Q: What does success for Mosaic look like to you?

“A successful Mosaic pays attention to the foundation because if we mess around with the foundation we will collapse, and in my opinion, the foundation is the staff.”
