As part of National Community Health Center week U-S Senator Tina Smith held a round-table with healthcare providers to discuss disparities in health care.

“Everybody wants to be healthy, everybody wants to have a safe place to live, and that is not within reach for so many people. And that’s where those social determinants really come into play.”

Experts listed small, community-based health centers and tele-health as key factors in providing healthcare for under-served communities.
