When asked about his interest in serving CommUnityCare, Garrett said “I could not be more honored to join the board of CommUnityCare. Like for many people, COVID-19 was a catalyst for me to look around my community and see what I could do to help out. Learning about the invaluable service provided for low-income people in and around Travis County made me excited to join
CommUnityCare in its vision to provide the right care, at the right time, at the right place.”
