About this event

The Providers will be screened at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 26 in the Auditorium of the Nebraska Union at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 1400 R St.

The free event is presented by NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, in partnership with UNL. A popcorn bar will be available during the film, and a panel discussion will follow.

Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three “country doctors” in New Mexico at clinics offering care to all, regardless of ability to pay. As their personal struggles at times reflect those of their patients, the providers work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left without healthcare.
