My name is Jaron Quirante. I am an aspiring physician assistant and a graduate from Brigham Young University. I spent two years of my life serving a volunteer church mission in the Bay Area of California, where I met many people from Mexico and Central/South America. There, I felt a spark to dedicate my life to always serve the underrepresented/underserved populations of the world and the United States. I completed my first medical outreach trip through VAW in Panama in July 2022, and am looking forward to being a team leader in 2023!
