“The Providers” Documentary Screenings and National Broadcast Debut

If you missed the January screening of the award-winning documentary “The Providers,” you’re in luck! On Saturday, March 30, the film will be shown at The University of the New Mexico (UNM) Student Union Building (SUB). The two screenings, held at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., will be hosted by one of the Providers, Matt Probst.

“The Providers” follows UNM School of Medicine alumni Leslie Hayes, MD, Matt Probst, PA-C, and College of Nursing alumnus Chris Ruge, RN, and their work at El Centro Family Health, a network of clinics serving a 22,000-square-mile area in northern New Mexico. The film focuses on the cities of Las Vegas and Española, and shows the challenges the three providers face in serving a region hard-hit by the opioid crisis that has difficulty recruiting medical professionals.

If you can’t make it to either of the screenings, the national broadcast debut of “The Providers” documentary is set for Monday, April 8 on Independent Lens | PBS! Check your local PBS listings for broadcast times. Invite your friends and family to gather and watch together, and bring the story of today's country docs into your own home! #theproviderspbs
