BTG Advisory Board

"Bridging the Gaps had a huge impact ... When the summer began, we had a two-month waiting list for clients to receive services. With the help of the two Bridging the Gaps interns … we were able to completely erase that waiting list by the end of July."

BTG 20th Anniversary Tribute

"BTG allowed me to experience health care from a different perspective, that of the patient. I witnessed the frustration of managing chronic illness on a daily basis, appreciated the courage needed to make meaningful changes for one's health, and the difficulty in making these choices without adequate support or resources "
