The Mud Creek Clinic is a primary health care center that was started in 1973 by a community in Floyd County, Kentucky with the idea that health care is a right, not a privilege. This program describes the formation of the clinic, explores the feelings among patients and community members that the clinic belongs to them, and draws a portrait of clinic director Eula Hall. Hall has long been involved in community struggles in eastern Kentucky, from the fight for a school lunch program in Floyd County to UMWA picket lines in Harlan County. Mud Creek Clinic depicts the clear and passionate victory of a community in organizing and maintaining health care for all its people.

Reviews

“Presents an excellent example of what a rural health care delivery system should be. Also underscores the positive role a community can play in improving health care when they are welcomed and involved in their local clinic. Essential viewing for anyone in medical school or a nursing program who plans to work in a rural area.” –Dr. Artie Ann Bates, Physician, Leatherwood (Kentucky) Clinic

“Eminently lucid and captivating….A sobering and compelling rendition of a grassroots success story in Appalachia…an exceptionally valuable vehicle for learning about the people and conditions of this region.” –Gifford S. Nickerson, North Carolina State University, in Science Books and Films
