Charleen Hsuan and Hector Rodriguez have just published an article in the American Journal of Public Health entitled, “The Adoption and Discontinuation of Clinical Services by Local Health Departments”
The article finds that,
Most LHDs are discontinuing clinical services over time. Those that cover a wide range of core public health functions are less likely to discontinue services when residents lack care access. Thus, the impact of discontinuation on population health may be mitigated.
Congratulations to Charleen and Hector for their excellent work.
