Dr. Kelly Rhone instructs as USD medical students experience telemedicine at Avera's eCare facility.

South Dakotans don’t have answers to many of their health care questions. Between federal administration changes and decisions at the state level, the issue of delivering quality, cost-effective health care is bathed in uncertainty. Local advocates say patients should not panic; instead they say people can better understand the factors at play nationally and within South Dakota – and know that people are fighting for their wellness.

In this Dakota Midday discussion, hear from Scott Duke, President and CEO of the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations and Dr. Tim Ridgway, a past president of the South Dakota State Medical Association.  SDPB's Kealey Bultena and Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh offer a snapshot of the ways health leaders are working for patients and medical professionals despite the uncertainty.

You can hear extended conversations with Dr. Tim Ridway and Scott Duke. Find those files below.
