Medical resources for your stories

We have medical experts available for interviews on a wide variety of topics. Call 218.736.8193 to schedule an interview or send an email request.

Every effort will be made to arrange for one of our experts to answer your questions or provide background information for your assignment. (Please note that patient care is our first priority, and occasionally our physicians' schedules will not allow for interviews.)
