WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
JOIN ALPINE PUBLIC LIBRARY FOR A CONVERSATION ON LOCAL HEALTH CARE RESOURCES ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16, AT 1:00 PM
The Big Bend region is designated as a Health Professional Shortage Area by the U.S. government, and residents of the area, both those accessing and those providing health care, experience the challenges of this shortage, especially now. Alpine Public Library will provide community members with a forum for sharing their experiences. A fuller understanding of local medical resources, unmet health care needs, and inequities in access to resources will benefit area residents, health care providers, and government agencies as they make decisions related to health care.
We will meet at the library in the AEP Community room on October 16 at 1 pm.
This event offered through Alpine Public Library is part of Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).
