    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Medical Care in Duluth

Since I’ve been in Duluth for two years, whilst having a few minor medical issues (concussion anyone remember?), I decided to start seeing a Duluth physician. I’m a big girl and I’m growing up, hopefully I’ll be in Duluth a few more years, so I decided why always drive 2 hours home for my doctor’ appointments. I attempted to get a doctor here freshman year, but my insurance was funky and it just wasn’t the right time to switch. This year my insurance switched again and I decided it was time. I never really how hard it was to find a freaking doctor! I thought it would be easy because Duluth is huge, has multiple hospitals and clinics, and the healthcare is considered good. Nope. It took me 2 hours to research my preferred doctors, then an hour to find an appointment time. Duluth doctors are very jampacked and most doctors I tried to get physicals with were booked out for months. I originally settled on my yearly physical in December when I planned for it in April! Finally, I got super lucky and I found a doctor at one of the Essentia clinics. I had my first appointment today and I really liked my new doctor! If you’re a freshman, I don’t necessarily suggest going through all this hassle to find a local doctor. I’d like to possibly get a job in Duluth however, so I decided it was worth the switch from the hometown doctor. It’s super simple to get anything mild checked out by our on-campus Nurse Practitioner (who is super nice and treated me during my concussion). On campus we have free testing for strep, STDs, or many other non-lab things. I got my vaccinations for my Jamaica course there too!
