Volunteer doctors? Thanks, but no thanks.

We all know that health care is a major issue in America. I met a very interesting man named Stan Brock recently who works to bring medical care to those who cannot access it. There is a great “60 Minutes” story below:

Unfortunately, one detail that “60 Minutes” left out is that Remote Air Medical won’t come to New Mexico and most states besides Tennessee because doctors from other states are not allowed to volunteer their medical services in states in which they are not licensed. Yet another way that licensing fails to serve those who it is theoretically supposed to protect.

Anyway, if any legislators out there are interested in sponsoring legislation to allow volunteer doctors from out of state to serve in New Mexico, we’d be happy to help.
