Welcome New Committee Members

Rebecca Borders, MD
Staff Radiologist, WellSpan Medical Group

Why did you choose to serve on the PHP Committee?
I am gratefully indebted to the PHP and was honored to be nominated to serve.

Why do you believe the work being done at the PHP is so important?
Unfortunately, the general population statistics for sobriety success are not good… and yet the success of health care professionals to achieve and maintain sobriety are inversely very good. State PHPs are an integral part of that success, and Pennsylvania’s is one of the best. We are so lucky to have such kind and professional staff that only want the best for us.

Jagdeep Kaur, MD
Clinical Director of MAT services, Addiction Psychiatry, Keystone Health, Chambersburg, PA

Why did you choose to serve on the PHP Committee?
Physicians, other health care professionals and trainees are precious and invaluable parts of our society. Their physical and mental well-being is essential for the safe practice of their profession, and the safety of the public. I chose to serve on the PHP Committee because PHP comprises of dedicated staff members who live PHP’s mission and vision.  

Why do you believe the work being done at the PHP is so important?
PHP’s work is not just important, it is essential. Sound and healthy health care workforce is a must for whole society’s physical and mental well-being as current COVID-19 pandemic has proved that. Health care workforces are not just providing medical care, they are supporting mentally, emotionally and spiritually their patients as well. As a society, we need to preserve this valuable resource and for the last 30 years PHP is tirelessly working on this task.
