Healthcare in Rural Nevada
Nevada Week | Healthcare in Rural Nevada
SEASON 2: EPISODE 29 | Airdate: 1/31/2020
Here in Nevada, healthcare continues to be a challenge for 300,000 Nevadans living in our state's rural lands. Hospital closures, reductions in emergency services, and a lack of specialized healthcare providers are putting rural residents’ health at risk. On this episode of Nevada Week, we talk to providers on the front lines of rural healthcare about the possible solutions to this ongoing problem.
