40 under 40: Dr. Brian Sullivan

40 under Forty winners (from left) Dr. Brian Sullivan, MD, James A. Valis, Oriola Koci and Bob Miller.

Sullivan didn't always enjoy the remarkable diversity afforded to him by the health center's Tacoma Street flagship office. Prior to caring for patients in dozens of languages, he worked in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood of Salt Lake City.

Sullivan decided to take on a leadership role where he could support his colleagues in Worcester after seeing how the traumatic histories of his diverse patient panel impacted doctors.

Before entering medical school, Sullivan took a six-month solo bicycle journey through Central America. He still enjoys biking, mostly riding off jumps with his children.

By the time I am 50... I would like the health center to have successfully navigated payment reform to become an Accountable Care Organization.

What is your advice to young business people? Go easy on us doctors. Try to have your greatest impact in a place of greatest need.

What fictional character is most like you? Either no one has written about me, or I am not well-read enough to have found such a character.

The people I work with would tell you I am... patient, approachable, positive, sarcastic, enthusiastic.
