Keiko Kurita, FNP joins Lovejoy Health Center

ALBION—The staff at Lovejoy Health Center will be welcoming Keiko Kurita, family nurse practitioner, to the practice this winter. Keiko recently graduated from the Family Nurse Practitioner Program at the University of Southern Maine and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Science, Technology and Society in 2013 from Vassar College, New York. Her areas of interest include family medicine, gerontology, diabetes, family planning, nutrition and physical activity.

Keiko completed a clinical rotation at another HealthReach practice in her final semester as a nurse practitioner student. “I am returning to HealthReach, because I thoroughly enjoyed my clinical rotation,” shared Keiko. “There was a strong sense of community at the health center, and the patients and employees always had positive things to say about HealthReach. I am thrilled to join the team of caring individuals at Lovejoy who collaborate to provide quality primary care for all patients. I am drawn to community-based primary care because of the opportunity to meet and learn from people of all ages.”

Keiko will be joining physicians Dean Chamberlain and David Austin, physician assistant Bobby Keith, family nurse practitioner Kaitlynn Read, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner Marta Hall and clinical social worker Deb Daigle.
