Lugar Center Hosts Representatives Pfaff & Fleming
On July 11th the Lugar Center for Rural Health in collaboration with West Central Indiana AHEC had the honor of hosting current Indiana State House Representatives Tonya Pfaff (43rd district) and Rita Fleming (71st district). The meeting's discussions centered on the issues faced by rural Hoosiers and what the Lugar Center for Rural Health and Union Health are doing to address them.
Specifically, there were discussions on issues of addiction, alternatives to medication for pain management, workforce development, scope of practice for physicians and nurse practitioners, and infant mortality. The Lugar Center for Rural Health also connected Representatives Pfaff and Fleming with medical students and family medicine residents to gain their perspective of the industry they're preparing to enter.
