Physician Assistant, Tu Forkner, PA-C

ABOUT TU FORKNER, PA-C

Tu Forkner PA-C attended the University of Texas at Dallas for her undergraduate degree in Biology. After graduation, she attended an EMT program and worked as an EMT-B for a year prior to starting the UT Southwestern's PA program, where she completed her coursework to become a physician assistant.

I was a first-generation college student and am a first generation medical professional in my family. Growing up, my family never really talked about women's health and there was a lot of misinformation. As I entered PA school, I saw an opportunity to be a link between patients and their health. I want to be a resource for women and girls to learn more about their health and empower them through knowledge. I believe that helping patients make informed decisions will help build a healthier community.
