The BCI Mission and what it means to me

It has been a truly humbling experience to be able to meet and provide services to families in the rural areas of New Mexico via BCI’s telehealth model. Being from a small time in rural New Hampshire has made me very aware of the need for high quality services in these areas and I am thrilled to be part of such an innovative team.
