Run & Walk & Cheer for Packard - Ann Arbor Marathon, March 24, 2019

Check out these Packard Health people …

Dr. Ravi Vadlamudi was in Nepal during the 2015 earthquake, and in Louisiana in the aftermath of Katrina. Like each and every Packard Health care provider, Dr. Ravi has a personal store of exceptional commitment and compassion. He’s drawn to help people in need.

Karen Koeppe, Certified Diabetes Educator and Dietitian, has worked with patients to manage their chronic disease for 18 years. She created the Packard Pacers, a group of patients that walk the trails of County Farm Park each summer.

On Sunday, March 24, 2019 Ravi and Karen will join a dozen other Packard Health staff in the Probility Ann Arbor Marathon. The community health center is a featured charity of the event.

Packard Health was founded 46 years ago with the vision that everyone deserves access to quality health care. Packard Health provides integrated, team-based care, regardless of patients’ ability to pay, type of illness or circumstance.

Picture Packard Health – on any given day, exam rooms are filled with at-risk patients. They have complex medical needs, addiction and mental health issues, immigrant concerns, and an array of social barriers to healthcare. They are the most vulnerable in our community.

It takes uncommon caregivers to effectively connect with the most vulnerable – people like Packard’s Dr. Ronald Romero, who received 2018 Clinician of the Year Award from Michigan Primary Care Association. People like Ravi Vadlamudi and Karen Koeppe, who will be on the course March 24th, urged on by a cheering team of Packard Health volunteers.

Everyone deserves the best opportunity to achieve health. That’s the idea that Packard Health runs on.
