An international group of doctors is studying how we handle medical care in the Heartland. They want to know how health care is taken care of in rural areas. The group is from Luzhou Medical College in China. Dr. Liu, who is president of the college, was in the group, "We want to get help from those fields like nursing, environmental protection, and teaching," he says through an interpreter
Help that will hopefully provide better medical care to their patients back home. Their visit took them to the Midtown Family Medical Center in Cape Girardeau. A tour of the patient rooms, the lab, and a look at where the records are kept, to see how the staff takes care of people.
