JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
A Brooke Army Medical Center Soldier was selected to attend the competitive Interservice Physician Assistant Program at the U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.
U.S. Army Sgt. Elisha Alcantar, noncommissioned officer in charge of the Department of Emergency Operations at Brooke Army Medical Center, came to BAMC in 2018 on compassionate reassignment because her father was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
The San Antonio native returned home to assist with his care. “I took him to all his appointments, it was always physician assistants there treating him and working with him,” she said.
