Let's Reverse the Rural Physician Shortage
By Lia Spiliotes,
10:17AM / Monday, July 15, 2019

In rural regions, this looming physician shortage is already hurting patients. A new poll by Harvard, NPR, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that one-quarter of those surveyed had trouble accessing

If it comes in the form of an entertaining film like director Danny Boyle's
