November 30, 2018 – Special correspondent Sarah Gustavus sits down with two doctors involved in an innovative health apprenticeship program.  The program, at Casa de Salud in Albuquerque’s South Valley, gives teens and young people the chance to gain valuable experience in the health care industry and access to mentoring to help them plan a career. It also helps offset some of the costs of the clinic, which provides an integrated approach to medicine that is also affordable for the mostly immigrant clientele. And it helps increase the diversity of medical providers in our state.

Guests:

Dr. Anjali Taneja, executive director of Casa de Salud

Dr. Susan Muraida, resident, UNM Family Practice, and former Casa de Salud apprentice
