When a graduate student with no health coverage, she became a patient of Unity Health Care. She has remained a patient-consumer, as a result of her belief and trust in public health. As chair of the UHC Board of Directors, Dr. Walton continues her advocacy of patient needs and responsibilities. In particular, Dr. Walton is a strong supporter of patient health and care, while maintaining and enhancing sustainable technology engagement.
