Carol Harrington brings over 30 years of healthcare experience to CenterWell and specializes in diabetes and weight management. She attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and then went on to the University of Missouri-Kansas City to receive her Master’s of Science in Nursing. She also has her Post-Graduate degree as a Nurse Practitioner. Carol chose a career in the healthcare industry because she knew very early on that her passion was to help people improve their lives, specifically around disease prevention. She believes that she can help her patients meet their long-term goals by guiding them to make healthy lifestyle changes. Carol also emphasizes the importance of patient satisfaction in her day-to-day by taking the time to listen to her patients’ concerns and teaming up with them to find different treatment options specific to their health needs. Carol decided to join CenterWell because she values the multidisciplinary team and holistic approach to senior-focused primary care. She believes that the best provider-patient relationship begins with the patient as the team leader and the health care provider as their guide, who focuses on establishing an individualized treatment plan for the patient. During her free time, Carol enjoys hanging out with her family and friends, playing pickle ball and working on her yard with her two dogs by her side.
