Driscilla Tettey's background in human development and family studies has quickened her with understanding the process of enlarging people's freedoms and opportunities and improving their well-being. Tettey has a passion for tending to underrepresented or underresourced communities and currently serves as a project coordinator for projects funded by the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. Tettey sees health as a capability and believes that one of the virtues of health care is that it combines personal and social factors into measuring a person's health outcome. With this motivation, Tettey is excited to be involved with the Ambassador Program as a passionate advocate for uniting the voice and approach of patients and their families to advance health care, access and decision making.
