Can Do: Understanding rural health with Angelina Salazar and Chris Hopkins

Chris Hopkins
Chris Hopkins

This week on Can Do, we go behind the scenes of rural health care in the West. 60 million Americans and approximately 44% of Montanans live in areas with less access to health care, resulting in a myriad of chronic health issues. The Covid-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected rural areas, exacerbating problems that were already difficult to solve.

To better understand these challenges, we speak with Angelina Salazar, CEO of the Western Healthcare Alliance and Chris Hopkins, CEO of Montana Health Network. They’ll help peel back the layers of how rural health care is changing, and what impact the pandemic has had on staffing and operations. Listen in as Salazar and Hopkins address longstanding problems, potential solutions, and explain the innovation present at the heart of rural health care.
