Letter to the editor: Doctor for Medicaid expansion
As a retired doctor and lifetime rural Kansas resident, I understand well how access to health care can be a matter of life and death for families and communities.
Kansas faces many challenges maintaining services in rural communities. Solutions will require a combination of technology, innovation, risk-taking and political courage.
As a rural practitioner, I championed technology’s power 30 years ago, seeing telemedicine as key to maintaining services for our future and to solving our health care puzzle by mitigating rural workforce shortages and enabling outside specialty services.
