Meet the evolvedMD Team – Ongoing Support Edition
Integrating behavioral health services into primary care practices is not a one-person job. The same could be said about almost any industry, but it’s especially true when you’re radically changing the way people are treated. As a people-centered organization, we’ve spent a lot of time on recruiting great folks who not only do their jobs well but also strongly believe in our culture and vision. Over the next few weeks, you'll get to learn more about them, what they do at evolvedMD, and a fun fact thrown in for good measure.
This week, it's our pleasure to introduce our Ongoing Support team. These individuals are integral to carrying out our audacious mission and while each role is unique, this passionate group works collaboratively across a variety of projects to help evolvedMD lead the integration of behavioral health services in modern primary care.
