Physician Assistant Marissa Jukka, PA-C, has joined the Neonatology Department at Essentia Health-Fargo in Fargo, ND.
“I joined Essentia Health because I wanted to be part of a health care system that has a strong relationship with its surrounding community and also implements a mission and vision that mirrors my own ethics and values,” says Jukka. “It was important for me to find a neonatal care team that prides themselves in their teamwork, family-centered care and education.”
Jukka earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Manchester, NH. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
