Shortage of Primary Care Doctors Threatens Our Nation

by Dr. Boyce Watkins 

I did an appearance last night on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 to discuss the issue of Health care reform. This has been heavy on the mind of our president for his entire first year in office and has led to quite a few political battles on Capitol Hill. Health care is in serious jeopardy, as the cost of entitlement programs such as Medicaid/Medicare and Social Security threaten our nation's economic security. Our national debt has risen to unprecedented and frightening levels, and our politicians have little incentive to do anything about it.
One additional problem that we are running into on the issue of health care is the fact that our nation doesn't have enough Primary Care physicians. These doctors are incredibly important, since they are the first line of defense against illness in America.
Over the next 10 years, our nation is expected to have a shortfall of 40,000 Primary Care doctors. By 2025, that number is expected to balloon to over 120,000. To make matters worse, our population is aging, implying that there will be a greater demand for these doctors in the future.

Grateful, he wrapped his arms around his friend and buried his face in his neck. Given that theyd once been lovers, he would be more in tune to her feelings. Colors bled, and the stone trees melted into the floating water of the stream. That was the logical thought. Hands closed over her shoulders, distantly felt. Miraculously, no one seemed to notice. She shook her head. Im here should you need me, he murmured, folding his legs underneath him. Her tears mingled with the oils that slowly dried from Hyles skin. This felt right, and she was here cutting out her soul anyway. Let me go, you oaf. He stepped forward, and it was her turn to flinch away. Its not the same without you. Care to make it up to us? She rolled her hips so his shaft rubbed her opening. It felt like he was pushing at the base of her heart. For you, came his hidden thought, I would make time. He shared in her laughter, and she gloried at how easy it was. She was so close He switched his hold as he knelt on the mattress.

His lips parted ever so slightly, and she heard a soft sigh of breath expel. Hyles hand came up to brace on his shoulder, encouraging him to look up again. It may mean nothing to you, but I must say that Im proud of you. They had fought about it too often for Eyrhaen not to know what he meant. But she wasnt lashing out.
