Adirondack Healthcare Systems – a focused study of rural health
Herm Lehman, Faculty-in-Residence
Professor of Biology
This multidisciplinary course will examine various health care systems with a focus on rural health in the Adirondacks. We will examine rural health care systems in the Park, that include medical care (hospitals, doctor groups, allied health professions, insurance), public health organizations (population-based services), and non-governmental, community organizations. Specific topics will include the history of health care in the Adirondacks, development and organization of various health and medical entities within the park, strengths and challenges related to cost, quality, and access to these systems in rural communities, how these systems interact, and current issues related to health care systems.
Details coming soon... stay tuned!
