“I wanted to serve a diverse population and be able to work in a family medicine setting where I get to see patients of all ages with varying backgrounds,” said Jarvis. “I hope to be able to learn new things from patients while also providing them care that may not have been as accessible to them before.”

Jarvis will serve patients as a family medicine provider at WYH’s flagship health center, located at 920 Lark Drive.
