Join us for a screening and discussion of The Providers, a new documentary by Laura Green and Anna Moot-Levin.
Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three "country doctors" in New Mexico at clinics offering care to all, regardless of ability to pay. Despite personal struggles that at times reflect those of their patients, these providers work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left without healthcare.
