catastrophes you face at work are easier to handle. The more
friends you have the happier you are.

is some data that indicates there will be a shortage of 150,000
physicians and that this shortage will be even more acute in
rural areas. The physicians will bear the brunt of facing that
challenge. We as practicing physicians must empower ourselves
and our patients for healthcare to be successful in this country.
