In this episode BCTR director Karl Pillemer welcomes Dr. Monika Safford to discuss how the chronically ill rural poor are underserved or completely unserved by the current health care system. This lack of resources has created resourceful and creative community medical groups that fill in the gaps, and with whom Dr. Safford and her team have partnered to address the health crises in their communities. Dr. Safford is the John J. Kulper Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine and the chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. She is a clinician-investigator with clinical expertise in preventive healthcare, treatment of acute and chronic illness, and the coordination of care for those with complex diseases. She is an expert in patient-centered research on diabetes, cardiovascular epidemiology and prevention, and health disparities.
