I am very excited about this opportunity and grateful to have been selected for it.”

Dr. Lund – who is also on staff at Morton Hospital in Taunton – attended medical school at Drexel University. She completed her residency training at Tufts Medical Center, as well as a fellowship at the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center.
