When Amanda January was growing up in Gardner, Kansas, regular doctor’s visits weren’t a regular thing at all.
“When I was a kid we almost never went to the doctor,” January says. “I was rarely sick. My siblings were rarely sick. We just didn’t go.”
She’s now a dancer and Pilates teacher who works hard to manage her health, but she’s still skeptical about doctors.
“Some doctors might care more about paying off their student loans than their patients,” she says.
