Sioux Center Health is excited to announce the addition of Lindsey Junk, MD, MPH to the Sioux Center Health team.
Dr. Lindsey Junk was born and raised in Angola, Indiana and attended Purdue University for her undergraduate studies. After leaving her beloved Boilermakers, she spent time living and working internationally in a Zimbabwean orphanage. That experience led her to pursue her Master’s in Public Health with a focus on Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Fascinated by research, she spent some time with Abbott Laboratories working with emerging diseases prior to starting medical school at Indiana University School of Medicine on their rural medicine track. She completed her family medicine residency in Columbia, South Carolina within the PRISMA Health system and most recently was providing care in rural Colorado prior to making the move to Sioux Center. Dr. Junk is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Junk is passionate about providing full scope family medicine care including OB care and woman’s health. She is excited to continue to learn and grow with the wealth of experience at Sioux Center Health. Part of the draw to Sioux Center was that of a smaller community, and she can not wait to start developing long term patient-provider relationships based in trust and mutual respect.
When not seeing patients, she likes to travel both internationally and domestically to keep up with family and old friends as well as meeting new people. Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Haiti, France, Italy, Ireland, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania have all been checked off her to-visit list with all the rest of world just waiting to be explored! Books, building, and baking are also interests Dr. Junk likes to pursue and use to express some creativity.
Please welcome Dr. Junk to the organization!
