The Providers by Laura Green and Anna Moot-Levin
Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three “country doctors” in New Mexico at clinics offering care to all, regardless of ability to pay. As their personal struggles at times reflect those of their patients, the providers work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left without healthcare.  Moderator:  Jamilah Peters-Muhammad.  For more information, contact Drena Clay Johnson at (504) 569-9070.
