Operation Change Community Report: Hazard, Kentucky, with Keisha Hudson

Every iteration of Operation Change has a unique aspect. There may be certain chronic health conditions that are common to urban, suburban and rural communities, but the needs of different communities vary greatly. Hazard in eastern Kentucky has some of the highest levels of chronic conditions and poverty rates in the country. Many people are living in isolated circumstances and with limited access to health services. Many are on fixed incomes, claim disability benefits, and many do not access preventive care until they reach Medicare age. In this podcast, Hazard program leader Keisha Hudson describes some of the challenges and successes experienced during the first truly rural Operation Change. Part 5/7 of our Operation Change series. Hosted by Dr. Bonnie Simpson Mason.
