Caryl Carpenter discusses the challenges with the structure of Mountain People’s Health Councils

Caryl Carpenter, former administrator of the Mountain People’s Health Councils (MPHC) of East Tennessee, talks about challenges in the structure of MPHC, which was founded in 1974 as a coalition of three rural health clinics in Norma (Scott County), Petros (Morgan County) and Stoney Fork (Campbell County). Each clinic grew out of health fairs conducted by the Vanderbilt Student Health Coalition in 1972.

Recorded on May 17, 2017, as a part of a panel discussion at a reunion of the Student Health Coalition at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
