Rural Healthcare in America

By: Kyle Worthy

Episode Two: Physician Shortages

 

In this series on rural health in America, we’re diving into the issues that are threatening access to care in some of our most medically underserved communities.

 

This episode focuses on the problem of physician shortages, which is particularly dire in rural areas, as well as the leaders who are trying to find creative ways to recruit doctors to the communities that need them most.

 

We will hear from Dr. Curry of UAB again, as well as Alan Morgan of the National Rural Health Association, Bill Finerfrock of the National Association of Rural Health Clinics, and Brad Huerta, CEO of Lost Rivers, a thriving hospital in the small town of Arco, Idaho. 

 

Their expertise is invaluable to anyone struggling to find solutions to physician shortages in rural areas.
