Access: A Look at Health Care in Southeast Missouri

Feb 24, 2017

In recent months, the topic of health care and the legislation surrounding it have been a hot button issue. But in rural communities where social and economic disparities create barriers for families, access to quality health care becomes even more of a challenge. So today we’re taking a step back and assessing what the health needs for Southeast Missourians are. To do that, I’m joined by KRCU’s “Vital Signs” panelists: Dr. Gloria Green who is the chairperson for the Department of Nursing at Southeast Missouri State University, Dr. Linda Garner, an Associate Professor in the Department of Nursing, and last but not least Desma Reno, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Nursing here at Southeast.
