Description

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "three-part series that documents the acute lack of health care for hundreds of thousands of rural Arkansans.... due largely to the combined effects of poverty and lack of transportation, medical care is virtually out of reach for many rural Arkansans except in emergency cases. The series documents ... the existence of an underground transportation network upon which rural Arkansans are utterly dependent for the most basic functions of everyday life, whether it is going to a store to buy food or getting to a hospital. This informal, private transportation network forces thousands of rural Arkansans to spend a large portion of what little money they have just to get to and from the grocery store or hospital."
