  • Scrubs Camps: Growing the Program That’s Growing Our Own
    Jul 3, 2013 -- The Rural Collaborative Opportunities for Occupational Learning in Health (R-COOL-Health) Scrubs Camps began in 2009 as a minigrant program focused on introducing rural North Dakota students in Grades 5 through 12 to various careers in health care. If you fast-forward four years, you will clearly see that the 41 camps involving 184 communities and over 2,600 kids have touched people in every corner of the state.
  • Team Boosters: A Bright Spot for Rural North Dakotans is the Increasing Role that Advanced Practice Providers Play in Primary Care
    Jul 3, 2013 -- It is no secret that the country is facing a shortage of primary care physicians now and into the future. The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates that by 2020 there will be 45,000 too few primary care physicians. With shortages this large, and demand still increasing, there is no easy solution. These shortages are exacerbated in rural North Dakota, where communities can spend tens of thousands of dollars and years recruiting a physician to their community.
