Dr. Jessie Lindemann has recently moved from a corporate medicine environment to a community healthcare clinic where she can provide care for uninsured and underinsured patients at Community Health Service, Inc. in Moorhead, MN. She talks about how she decided to become a doctor after her recovery from Hodgkin’s lymphoma. So many things, Dr. Lindemann says, come up when it comes to cancer survivorship, but the medical profession hasn’t done a good job of managing these after effects. One of her goals is to create recognition of this gap in care and provide needed services which currently are lacking for many cancer survivors.
