How does the FC PA program define the mission goal of providing quality healthcare to underserved populations?”

We define quality health care as the latest evidence based medical recommendations applied in a patient center model of care. We promote treating the person and not simply treating the disease and focusing on prevention. Our intent is to spread empathetic and individual oriented treatments to all patients across the socioeconomic, geographic, cultural, and age spectrums.

In My Spare Time…

In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and dogs. We love taking walks, hiking, going to parks, and creating silly songs. I delight in preparing different foods and tasting foreign cuisines. I relish visiting my country of origin, Bosnia, and traveling.
