Dr. Carter's Upcoming Leave of Absence

May '23 - September 23

Dear patients,

I want to advise you that I am going to be on a prolonged leave of absence from FHCW this summer, from mid-May through late September. I am fine. I am not sick. I just have several things going on in my family (someone having surgery, college tours with Davis, a grandchild due in July) that need my attention, and I need to take a break from the health center and just focus on my family and myself for a few months.  It is my hope that when I return in September I will be refreshed and energized.

My colleagues and teammates will cover for your needs while I am away, and you can contact the health center in the same ways that you currently do.

I wish you a safe and healthy summer!


Lisa Carter, MD
