Healthcare in rural areas and the impact of reform

Have you ever lived in a rural area? When I was a medical student, I had the chance to spend a summer in a rural area that was filled with poverty. In fact, it was one of those "lowest-income counties" in the U.S. As we undergo healthcare reform, how will these changes impact those who live in rural areas?

  1. Thanks for posting this. I grew up in an area very similar to this. Rural poverty is stark. The doctor featured in the video is very impressive. I hope that everyone will benefit from health care reform.
