About John:
Dr. John Joyce lives and works in Blair County with his wife, Alice. He was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania to Bernie ands Peggy (Hallinan) Joyce, the third generation of the Joyce family to be born and raised in Altoona.

A 1975 graduate of Bishop Guilfoyle High School, John attended Penn State Altoona for two years, and then continued his undergraduate education at Penn State University Park. He graduated with honors with a degree in biology in 1979. John continued his education at Temple University receiving his M.D. in 1983.

Subsequently, he completed a 3 year internal medicine residency as a Johns Hopkins fellow in Baltimore, Maryland. He then completed a residency in Dermatology at Johns Hopkins finishing as chief resident. Dr. Joyce is a fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Dermatology.

After leaving Johns Hopkins Hospital, Joyce worked with the United States Navy at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Virginia during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He received commendations from U.S. Navy Rear Admiral David B. LeStage for his work during this time.

Upon completion of his time with the Navy, Dr. Joyce returned to his hometown, Altoona, with his wife Alice and their three children, where they established Altoona Dermatology Associates. For over 25 years, Dr. Joyce and his wife have cared for patients in the Central Pennsylvania area, serving all ten counties in the 13th Congressional district.

John has served on the Advisory Board of the Penn State Altoona Campus, the American Cancer Society, The United Way, the Goodman Trust, as a mentor for the Eberly College of Science at Penn State, and as a volunteer at the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen. He is a life-long member of the Cathedral in Altoona.

Dr. Joyce has spent his entire adult life serving families in our community, and now he wants to continue to serve people, but at a different level. John is running for Congress because he is fed up with career politicians who continuously put special interests and their next election before their constituents. His abilities to listen and problem solve are what our country needs in the US Congress.
