Rick Davidson on connecting with local communities through music

Richard Davidson M.D., M.P.H., talks about how music allowed him to connect with members of the communities he served as the first physician for Mountain People’s Health Councils (MPHC), a consortium of health clinics originally formed by the communities of Norma (Scott County), Petros (Morgan County), and Stoney Fork (Campbell County), Tennessee. 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.
