Playing sports is a fantastic way for children to explore and develop lifelong skills and confidence. It is well-known that children who participate in sports are more likely to excel academically.

Dr. Allyson and Dr. Jason carry forward a commitment to community service modeled by their parents. Dr. Allyson’s mother founded the annual fundraiser for the Stanislaus County Medical Alliance in her hometown of Modesto. Dr. Jason’s father finds funding and volunteers to provide fire clearance in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where his mom also volunteers as the community’s emergency response coordinator. Just as we are encouraged by our families to pay it forward, we encourage others to reach out as well.
Dr. Allyson began volunteering in Modesto at Evergreen Convalescent Home and became a life skills coach for the First Tee Golf Program. In college, she reached out globally, providing healthcare screenings for children in Oaxaca, Mexico for which she received a Child and Family Health International Humanitarian Award.
