Our Youth are Tomorrow’s Future
September 19, 2018
Austin Regional Clinic is pleased to announce that Jennifer L. Acosta, PA-C, Pediatric Physician Assistant, has joined the team at ARC Southwest After Hours Clinic.
When discussing why she chose to become a Physician Assistant (PA), Jennifer says, “I grew up in a medically underserved community in Laredo. I remember my true calling when I first met a physician assistant when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her knowledge, thoroughness and compassion helped my family through a tough time. I knew from that point on I needed to help those in their time of need as well.”
In discussing her philosophy of practice, Jennifer says, “Patient education is the butter of our profession.” She continues, “I strongly believe in educating patients, especially our youth. They will grow up one day and take care of us!”
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and cockapoo! She says, “I also enjoy running, Yoga, dancing, and cooking.” Oh, and Amy’s ice cream.
Jennifer’s best health tip is, “Take care of your body, you only get one! Instill healthy habits in our youth, they are tomorrow’s future!”
Welcome to Austin Regional Clinic, Ms. Acosta!
