Marsha Lange, MD Joins Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks
Grand Forks, N.D. – Marsha Lange, MD, joins the team at Altru Clinic in East Grand Forks. Dr. Lange earned her medical degree from Wayne State University Medical School in Detroit, Michigan. She completed her family medicine residency and internship at the David Grant U.S. Air Force Medical Center at the Travis Air Force Base in central California.
“My purpose is to help my patients’ bodies and minds function as well as they can so they aren’t limited in doing whatever makes their lives meaningful. And in the process, I get to know a lot of wonderful people and ‘do life’ with them,” Dr. Lange states.
Dr. Lange has special interest in global health, travel medicine and immigration and refugee care, stemming from her experiences as a U.S. Air Force medical officer and a civil surgeon. “There is a common humanity we all share that binds us together – similar worries, hopes, joys, just wrapped differently,” Dr. Lange explains. “It has been especially gratifying here in Grand Forks to meet our new neighbors, address their medical needs and watch them gain health, confidence and a new life.”
Dr. Lange and her husband have three adult children and a dog. Outside of work, she enjoys reading, classical music, being outdoors, learning foreign languages and medical volunteer trips.
