From House Calls to Mobile Health: What the ADKs Can Teach Us About the Future of Rural Health Care

The story of health care in the Adirondacks is intertwined with our communities. Hudson Headwaters Health Network CEO Tucker Slingerland, MD and Founder John Rugge, MD discuss rural health care by drawing on the Network’s 40 years of experience providing primary care throughout the Adirondacks. The discussion highlights the partnerships, people, and policies that have helped to shape these issues locally and explore the future of health care in the rural Adirondack region. The program was moderated by Thom Hallock of Mountain Lake PBS, and taped at Adirondack Experience the Museum on Blue Mountain Lake on August 2, 2021.
