Coleman introduces rural health initative


Many rural Minnesotans would have better health care, U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman said after introducing seven rural-health care bills.

The Minnesota Republican said the series of bills would help reduce the shortage of health care personnel, improve mental health services and expand use of remote health-care monitoring.

Rural health care generally is regarded as lacking when compared to big cities.
