"Pam Russo spent 35 years as a nurse at St. Rose Hospital and a health advocate in our community. This long history makes her a qualified leader to serve on the Eden Health District Board."
~Assemblymember Bill Quirk
MY BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE
As a nurse, l learned early on the importance of leadership. With a 35-year career at St. Rose Hospital, I learned to prioritize, respond to critical situations, set goals and measure successes. I also learned to pause, listen and advocate.
These lessons have allowed me to venture into new roles. Shifting from a caregiver at the bedside, I was able to expand health services beyond the walls of the hospital and out into the community. I opened clinics for women and children and expanded cancer and cardiac services for our community.
As a newly appointed Director to the Eden Health District Board, I have already demonstrated a progressive vision by actively engaging in the emergency response Coronavirus efforts in partnership with the Hayward Fire Department.
Born and raised in Hayward and a long-time resident of Castro Valley, the Eden Health District is my community.
