I am Advance Community Health… Meet Shannon Martin, PA
I chose to work at a Community Health Center because I saw the
opportunity to impact people’s health and the lives of those who may not have the opportunity to receive care otherwise. I was influenced by my own Physician Assistant at a young age. I thought she was caring and knowledgeable. She had a way of making me feel at ease at my appointments. I felt like I could tell her anything and could count on her to be honest and open with me. So, I like being able to provide care to the under-served. I had one patient tell me “you fixed me”. That makes me feel like what I’m doing here really matters. The one thing I try to stress the most is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and that can do wonders for your health. I enjoy it when my patient’s return to appointments and say things like “I am doing more walking”, or “I’ve cut out salt from my diet”. Little efforts like that really make a difference.
