Humboldt County's Doctor Dearth

  • Aired: 02/21/2018
  • 27:10
  • Rating: NR
Together with special guest Herrmann Spetzler, executive director of the Humboldt Open Door medical system, and others we explore what has recently been a crisis in the Humboldt County health system. As doctors have retired or left the area, new talent has been increasingly reluctant to settle here, leaving North Coast residents underserved.
