WHY I SERVE: LINDA OSBORNE
When the time came for me to search for ways to fill my free time after retiring, I looked to the hospital. What pulled me to St. Vincent Foundation was its mission to raise funds and awareness for many of the community programs which the hospital offers. First and foremost is the Healthcare Exploration Program which introduces local high school students to the opportunities which the world of health care offers them.
Most of my professional life in San Francisco was centered around health care…first as a freelance medical writer and marketer for hospitals and non-profits and then as executive director of a medical malpractice defense firm. My degree is in English literature and history from Connecticut college and I have dabbled in a law degree and graduate business school.
