April 22nd Speaker:
Jeff Lundgren, North Metro Pediatrics will be our speaker.  Jeff joined the North Metro team in January 2017 taking over leadership of the clinic.  He is a former member of the Board of Directors (2007 – 2010) and helped get the first annual golf tournament off the ground.  He received his bachelor’s degree in Business Management with an emphasis in entrepreneurship from St. Cloud State University and spent over 9 years in Customer Solutions and Supply Chain for General Mills before joining the team.  His favorite thing about working for North Metro is knowing they make a difference in the lives of families and hearing children call the staff members by name.  Affordable and accessible pediatric primary care focused on prevention.  They believe prevention starts with spending more time with families.  Their Nurse Practitioners spend nearly double the time with your child as most other clinics.  Have an urgent need for your child? They are often able to make room for same-day visits.  The Clinic accepts many forms of insurance including major health plan carriers as well as Medical Assistance and offer sliding fee payment arrangements.
