A classic film in community health…

Shot in the fall of 1969 and the winter of 1970, “Out in the Rural: A Health Center in Mississippi” highlights one of the very first Community Health Centers in the United States: the Tufts-Delta Health Center of North Bolivar County, Mississippi. The film captures the broad vision of a community health center involved in far more than traditional medical diagnosis and treatment. For more information on this film, please see an article published in Social Medicine by Dr. Carolyn Chu. This film is posted with the kind permission of Dr. Geiger.

    This video is so thought provoking and moving. Sad to say….we are still facing these issue today and things have gotten worse for the poor and deprived…. it makes no sense that many people in this country can not meet the bare necessities required for humane living.
