Hospice doctor gets certification

She performs consultative services to patients and families with advanced illness; helps to determine and implement hospice and palliative care policy; and serves as an end-of-life care resource to the community.
She received a medical degree from East Carolina University, completing a residency in the Martin General Hospital Family Medicine Rural Residency Program and an internship in family medicine at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. She is also board-certified in family medicine.
