Healthcare is one of the paramount concerns of our times. Providing all Americans with access to quality healthcare is one of the most complicated social policy issues faced by our nation. The unfortunate truth is not all Americans have access to basic care. In the United States, the divide is not just between rich and poor or the insured and uninsured. It is also about where you live –- in an urban or rural area. No place on earth exemplifies this fact more starkly than the poverty stricken areas of the Mississippi Delta. Vision Project’s documentary follows the doctors, nurses, community organizers and patients who are part of an innovative and well-planned healthcare network. Instead of focusing on the difficulty of the situation, they have chosen to focus on a solution.
