Residents Lack Access to Primary and Specialty Care

While Massachusetts has led the nation with health care reform, residents of the Commonwealth continue to lack basic access to primary and specialty care across the state. Poor patient access to care, an uncontrolled opioid epidemic and rising healthcare costs together present a perfect storm.  Many states however, have been proactive about removing practice barriers to increase access to NP driven care.

Friday, June 29, 5:00 pm – Cocktails in Great Gardens – Kinderhook, New York

Berkshire Botanical Garden again hosts its Cocktails in Great Gardens series, and on Friday, June 29 at 5 pm, they will be in a private garden in Kinderhook, New York. An allée of mature maple trees welcomes you to the home and gardens at this lovely Kinderhook, New York property. The main garden was conceived as a contained counterpoint to the surrounding farmland with a series of spaces, each with its own character. A kitchen garden of boxwood parterres and espaliered pears is planted with summer vegetables and herbs; the main lawn is enclosed by a boxwood and hornbeam hedge with a visual break revealing a view to the pond, fields, and mountains beyond.
