DRCHSD Delta Doctors Webinar

11 a.m. - 12 p.m. CT
The National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center)

Delta Doctors Webinar

Description: DRA's "Delta Doctors" program aims to provide non domestic, U.S. trained primary care and specialist physicians to healthcare facilities in DRA counties, many of which are designated health professional shortage areas. These physicians are required to work for a minimum of three years and many of them are retained long term. Christina Wooden, DRA Health Programs Manager, and immigration attorney Barry Walker of Tupelo, Mississippi, describe Delta Regional Authority's "Delta Doctors" program and how healthcare facilities in the DRA region may engage with the program in order to obtain the services of qualified physicians.

Audience: C-Suite facility staff & anyone who might find the information of value.

This webinar will be sent out in advance to actively participating cohort members. Should you have a question, please contact Caleb Lozinski.
