Rural areas are often characterized by low population densities, and large distances between available services and the population they serve. Lack of transportation in these areas makes access to services even more challenging. Access to primary healthcare was listed as the number one concern for patients in 2015 Copley Hospital Service Area (Lamoille County) and lack of suitable transportation was a major reason for this lack of access. The primary purpose of this project was to assess the medical transportation options for patients without appropriate transportation in Lamoille county, and to produce a flyer educating the patients about their options. The second goal was to educate the providers at Morrisville Family Health Care about the transportation struggles their patients face.
