Her Master’s Project focused on “Anti-Inflammatory Therapeutics in the Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease.”
“I am excited to be a member of the cardiology team as a Physician Assistant and to serve the healthcare needs of the community. During my clinical rotations, the time I spent in the North Country was among my best experiences as a student,” Ms. Kashmer said.
“Immersing myself in the natural beauty and community of this area is something I am greatly looking forward to. I enjoy camping and hiking in my spare time, so I appreciate being close to the Adirondacks,” she added.
Prior to becoming a PA, Ms. Kashmer was already involved in the healthcare industry as an Ambulatory Technologist/Cardiac Holter Monitor Technologist, and a Clinical Lab Support Technician III.
As a Cardiac Physician Assistant, Ms. Kashmer examines patients; administers key tests, including cardiac stress tests; and provides patient education. To schedule an appointment with her, call 315-274-9102. Learn more about the Cardiology services offered through St. Lawrence Health.
