Does your zip code determine your life? The Providers gives a very human face to the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America. The Providers follows Dr. Hayes '86 and two other healthcare professionals who are doing everything they can to make a difference in northern New Mexico at El Centro, a group of safety-net clinics that offer care to anyone who walks through the doors. Amidst personal struggles that reflect those of their patients, the journeys of the providers unfold as they work to reach those who would otherwise be left out of the healthcare system. With intimate access, the film shows the transformative power of providers’ relationships with marginalized patients, as physicians try to make a difference against overwhelming odds.

Dr Leslie Hayes '86 will be on hand to introduce the film and provide time for questions and answers at the conclusion of the screening.
