A New Way of Working Together in My New Role—by Belen Seara
At the end of this month, I’ll be joining the County’s Racial and Social Justice Office as the new equity manager. I’m so excited for this new role and opportunity to continue to make equity a reality for so many San Mateo County residents that have not had their fair share of the prosperity that this county has to offer. Leaving the Health Policy and Planning Program is not easy—I love the mission of our work, my dedicated colleagues, and the partners that help us move our work forward. But I know that in my new role, I’ll get to work with many of you in new ways, and I can’t wait to see what that looks like. Thank you for your work to help us achieve healthy and equitable communities and for your ongoing partnership!
