A Doctor for Rural America

Barbara Barksdale Clowse

University Press of Kentucky

A truck outfitted as a mobile clinic gave Bradley a new way to reach isolated rural families. She wrote a book, urging organizations to adopt this new healthcare delivery system. She spent a year and a half in Kentucky. She blamed poor child development and many military draft rejections upon the baneful effects of malnutrition.
