Next Tuesday at West Texas A&M University, the Texas Tribune will be presenting a public event entitled "Underserved: A Conversation on Rural Health Care."

For decades, the populations of rural Texas have been stagnant or declining. Scores of rural hospitals have closed in recent years, and rural residents of the Texas Panhandle have seen their access to proper medical care become increasingly limited.

This event will feature medical professionals, local officials and other stakeholders interested in reviving rural access to medical care.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Legacy Hall at West Texas A&M University in Canyon.
