Myers, Wayne; Russell, Jack; Baldwin, Fred D.
Appalachia, v32 n2 p16-21 May-Aug 1999
Wayne Myers, director of the Office of Rural Health Policy, discusses Appalachian rural health and access to health care. The health manpower shortage in Central Appalachia still exists but is less severe than 10 years ago. The needs of underserved areas could be address by training local people in the community and through telemedicine and community-health planning. (CDS)
