VCOM in Blacksburg announces faculty changes and additions
The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine has announced the arrival of a new faculty member and a promotion at its Blacksburg campus.
Dr. Michelle Jacobs has joined the faculty at the Blacksburg campus. She was part of the 2007 inaugural class of VCOM and now serves as the department chair for preventive medicine and public health.
She received her bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Loyola University Chicago and her Master in Public Health degree from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Jacobs completed her internship year in obstetrics and gynecology at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and went on to compete her residency in general preventive medicine and public health at the Palm Beach County Health Department/Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine program.
She continued her work at the Palm Beach County Health Department as a senior physician before moving back to Roanoke. She is also involved in the international outreach medical mission programs with VCOM. Jacobs will divide her time between academics at VCOM and seeing patients at the Academic Primary Care Center in Blacksburg and traveling to VCOM’s international mission sites.
Matthew LoJacono has been promoted as VCOM’s director of students services. LoJacono has been with VCOM since 2008. He will continue to work with all aspects of student services and will be more involved with student organizations and activities, as well as student support programs.
