Breaking Point

Examining health inequities in America’s rural communities

How does the lack of rural health services take its toll on both patients and practitioners? Who will step up to confront this issue?

This reporting is part of a collaboration with the Institute for Nonprofit News, The Daily Yonder, Carolina Public Press, Honolulu Civil Beat and Shasta Scout. Support from The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation made the project possible.
