Dr. Tamara L. Pascoe, a board certified family physician, was recently named medical director of the Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center in Worcester. The Paxton resident will assume her new duties July 1.
Dr. Pascoe graduated from the University of Utah Medical School and entered into a family medicine residency program in Boise, Idaho.
While a medical student, Dr. Pascoe was named a National Health Service Corp. Scholar and committed to work within an underserved area at a community health center. She chose the Kennedy Community Health Center, and liked it so much that she accepted an offer to return once her residency was completed.
Dr. Pascoe will be splitting her time between her administrative responsibilities and treating patients. Using her interest in sports medicine and experience as an athletic trainer, she recently initiated a monthly musculoskeletal clinic at 19 Tacoma St., where she sees patients with a variety of joint pain issues, often caused by previous sports activity or injuries.
The Kennedy CHC includes medical and dental facilities in Worcester, Framingham and Clinton. For more information about the health center, call (800) 853-2288.
