Directed by Laura Green, Anna Moot-Levin. Three healthcare providers bring care to those living on the margins, in a rural American community struggling with a shortage of doctors and the ravages of the opioid epidemic.
Does your zip code determine your life? If you live in a rural area, what kind of health care access do you have? The Providers gives a very human face to the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, following three healthcare professionals in northern New Mexico at El Centro, a group of safety-net clinics that offer care to anyone who walks through the doors, regardless of ability to pay.
