Brian Toomey - On his outreach work and services of the health center

Interviewed by Joey Parker on March 30, 2011

Brian Toomey majored in History and wanted to teach after graduation. He moved to Carrboro in 2010 from Massachusetts. He speaks in detail about the services of the health center he works at and the outreach work for the Northside Neighborhood. Toomey notes that one of the difficulties of reaching out to the community is the gentrification of Northside. When long-term residents move out of the community it is harder to build lasting relationships.
