Nurse Practitioner Jessica Gerard has joined the OB/GYN Department at Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic in Duluth, MN.

Gerard earned a master’s degree in nursing from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I believe in building relationships and empowering patients to be active participants in their healthcare,” explains Gerard. “Women represent the cornerstone of a family’s overall health and ensuring they receive quality care can also lead to improved health for their children and families.”
