Indie Lens Pop-Up presents The Providers

Meeting Room 302
03/14/2019 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

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. As their personal struggles at times reflect those of their patients, the providers work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left without healthcare.

Please stay after the film for a discussion with Sarah Johnson, Health Education Specialist at Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC).
