Primary concern is a story of compassion and perseverance against enormous odds: the dangerous demographic shift of baby boomers and the health care workforce aging simultaneously, the influx of an additional 30 million people seeking access to care who will be covered by the Affordable Care Act, and very few medical students going into primary care and not enough residencies for those who actually do. Primary care doctors in rural and under served areas in Georgia are already stretched thin as the first responders. How much longer can they hold back the impending storm?
At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:
- Provide information on the shortage of primary care providers in rural and medically under served areas.
- Share the importance of more medical students choosing to practice primary care.
