Physician leaders play an important role in the sustainability of rural healthcare. This week, we’re having a conversation with Dr. Bensson Samuel, who tells us about his experiences as an intensive care physician in rural Michigan.
“The interesting fact about rural health is that small contributions that are made by each individual in that community leads to a bigger impact.”
