KEYC: Sen. Al Franken Makes Stop In Mankato On Rural Health Tour
Senator Al Franken made his 18th stop on his Rural Health Tour, spending much of his morning at the Open Door Health Center, meeting with rural health experts.
Senator Al Franken is on a mission to improve rural health care, and to make it happen, he made a stop in Mankato to hear what health care issues are affecting those close to home.
Senator Al Franken said, “Heard a lot of good, some stuff I’ve been hearing a lot about electronic medical records and how we don’t really have them communicating with each other with different health systems and we need to improve that.”
Franken is the Co–chair of the bipartisan Senate Rural Health Care Caucus, and led the discussion with dozens of local health experts from all over the region.
