Rural Health Care (s1e3)
This week marks New Mexico PBS’ third in a series of partnerships with the community on the new and exciting project entitled Public Square. This month, as part of NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS, New Mexico PBS brings together community members from eastern New Mexico, for an impassioned and informed discussion about some of the biggest issues facing our children today. The focus this time is on the challenges of rural health care, including the shortage of health care providers for the youth. After intense deliberation to determine needs and identify problems, these participants then team up with a guest panel of policy makers, business leaders and community organizers to work together to seek solutions. New Mexico First Executive Director Heather Balas moderates this conversation geared toward problem-solving and pro-active results. Involved, informed and in-depth.
