Increase the Primary Care Workforce in Rural Communities
Legislators need to hear from you to understand the important role that primary care plays to ensure access and quality health care for ALL Minnesotans. They need to know that we have a severe shortage in our primary care workforce in rural Minnesota and that they can help by increasing funding for the Minnesota Health Care Professionals Loan Forgiveness Program

In Minnesota, we know that family physicians are THE doctors taking care of our rural communities, with family physicians making up more than 50% of physicians practicing in small, rural communities and more than 66% of physicians practicing in isolated areas (2017 Overview of the Physician Workforce, Minnesota Department of Health). 

Please let your legislators know the importance of expanding the Minnesota Health Care Professionals Loan Forgiveness Program to encourage additional physicians to practice in rural, underserved areas.
