Stand For Rural Healthcare Tour2019-08-18T18:03:56+00:00

Lack of affordable health coverage and emergency medical services is undoubtedly one of the greatest threats to the rural Tennessee way of life. Rural Tennesseans believe their way of life is worth fighting for, and so do Tennessee Democrats.

Join us on the TNDP Stand For Rural Healthcare Tour as we hear from and amplify the stories of families who have been affected by hospital closures and inadequate health care, and discuss real solutions to Tennessee’s healthcare crisis.
