17 Jan Jamestown Sun: Letter to the editor – 340b is essential program for ND
“Drive any stretch of highway in North Dakota, and one is struck by the beauty of this state. Still, the freedom we feel when we travel our endless prairies reveals a stark truth: North Dakota has a health care access problem.
It’s certainly no secret that we live in a rural state – the miles between our rural cities add up quickly in North Dakota, and those communities have serious health care concerns which we must not ignore.
It’s the reason that I’m writing about a federal program that has helped many communities maintain access to critical health care.
That program is known as 340b.”
