Jennica Cornine, certified physician assistant

"I have been interested in medicine since being diagnosed with diabetes as a child. My experiences as a pediatric patient with the Barbara Davis Diabetes Center in Denver helped pave the way for seeking to be the type of provider that empowers pediatric patients and their families to provide better self-care through education."
