Robin Jewett has been appointed as the new director of Trevecca’s Physician Assistant Program. Jewett, a 2005 graduate of the PA Program, has served as a full time faculty member in the PA Program since 2008. She replaces Mike Moredock, who retired this spring, after serving the PA Program a total of 27 years.
Four years ago Jewett and Trevecca PA students began a program to provide basic health education for residents of Mercury Courts, an urban housing project for individuals and families with low incomes. Last year Vanderbilt University School of Nursing opened a walk-in clinic at Mercury Courts to enhance the health education services provided by Trevecca PA students. Jewett applied for and received a Humana Grant to help fund the health education program and the medical clinic.
Jewett’s vision for the PA Program is an extension of Trevecca’s goal to prepare and send graduates who have compassionate hearts and who can provide leadership and service to humanity.
