Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three “country doctors” in northern New Mexico at clinics that offer care to all who walk through the doors, regardless of ability to pay. With personal struggles that at times reflect those of their patients, the journeys of the providers unfold as they work to reach Americans who would otherwise be left without healthcare.

Matt Willis, MD, MPH, –  Marin County Public Health Officer
Steven Siegel  – Chief Executive Officer at Coastal Health Alliance
