Jennifer WhalenJennifer Whalen, DHSc, PA-C, BCPA

Jennifer has been working in healthcare most of her life, starting as a CNA and medical assistant, then as a PA in urgent care, family and hospital medicine.

Jennifer’s frustration with the healthcare system prompted her to work to change the way healthcare was delivered. She enrolled in a Doctor of Health Sciences program and graduated in May 2020.

Her foray into health advocacy began when she was hired by Melissa Cardine to help grow her private health advocacy business. Jennifer saw the profound impact it was having on the lives of their clients and in 2019, she and Melissa teamed up to create The Bridge Health Advocates to provide advocacy and business training for new and practicing advocates.

Jennifer will speak Friday.
