Carla Cartagena De Jesus, MD
Tanana Valley Clinic
Dr. Cartagena De Jesus joins the pediatric team from her pediatric residency at the University of Arizona, where she had the opportunity to work with rural and under-served populations. She graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelor of Science degree followed by earning her Doctor of Medicine Degree from the University of Washington WWAMI Program.
At a young age, she was intrigued by medicine. Many of her family members were in medicine: her mother a medical assistant, her father in medical logistics and her grandmother was a nurse for over 30 years. Cartagena De Jesus was also exposed to medicine when family members were hospitalized, an experience that resonated with her.
She also has a passion for volunteering as she feels it is an extension of medicine because “you are giving yourself to the community in whatever way you can.”
