Jennifer M. Frese, M.D.
Dartmouth Medical School
I was raised in Harrisburg, PA, and then discovered wonderful New England through college at Bowdoin, 5 years developing blood gas analyzers in Boston, and the medical school at Dartmouth. My husband Zak and I moved with our 3-year-old twin boys to Rochester for a medicine internship. Although we miss the Red Sox fanatics, Rochester is wonderful. We love the hiking, farms, neighborhood playgrounds, and Lake Ontario beaches. After a year of Internal Medicine at the University of Rochester, I found I loved primary care and adult medicine more than ever. However, I greatly missed women's health, obstetrics,and pediatrics. Transferring to Family Medicine was a perfectfit! Email Jif .

State University of New York at Syracuse
College of Medicine
I grew up in the beautiful state of New Jersey (stop laughing all you New Yorkers). I became a full- fledged Upstate New Yorker, however, when my family moved to Corning. I was a freshman in high school at the time. I stayed in Upstate New York and went to Houghton College for undergrad and majored in Biology with a Missions minor. When I entered college, I thought that I would most likely be a teacher, maybe a science teacher, but quite possibly a kindergarten teacher. While at Houghton, I was able to participate in two semesters abroad, one in Tanzania and one in Morocco. It was during that time that my love for travel really developed. I thrived in these environments and really felt so much more at home while away than I often do in the US. I was also able to visit some of the rural clinics in these areas, and I was drawn to the idea of practicing medicine oversees in a clinic setting. I saw such a great need in these places, and slowly my ideas of teaching began to fade. I went to Upstate Medical University and, for a long time, thought that I would be a pediatrician (that whole kindergarten teacher thing was still a big part of me), but when I thought of what I would need for a clinic setting overseas, I thought I really should learn a little bit about everything. Family Medicine seemed like the perfect fit. When I am not working, I love to paint, read, and spend time in the great outdoors doing just about anything. Most of all, however, I want my life to be about serving others and honoring God through my work. Email Erin .
