Rural hospital closures continue to rise, leaving rural Americans without local access to healthcare.

On today’s episode, hosts JJ and Rachel talk with Dr. Shayann Ramedani, alumnus of the Penn State College of Medicine and a transitional year resident at Bassett Network in upstate New York about the rural hospital “bystander effect.”
