Sawtooth Mountain Clinic is a not-for-profit Community Health Center that has called Grand Marais home since 1979. For most of that time one woman has been at the helm.

Join WTIP’s Jay Andersen for Community Health Care – a long view with clinic CEO Rita Plourde – the December 15 Third Thursday Community Conversation.

Each month we sit down with interesting guests for an in-depth exchange of thoughts and ideas, opinions and points of view – professional and personal.

Rural community health care has changed dramatically over the past 30 years, especially for primary care facilities. Rita Plourde has seen changes in patient care, important medical advancements, public attitude swings toward diagnosis and treatment and much more.
