Community health centers are seeing an increase in those seeking care, due to a growing population of seniors and many physicians not accepting Medicare.  Sally Deane, CEO of Outer Cape Health Services, and Karen Gardner, CEO of the Community Health Center of Cape Cod, join us to talk about their strategic plans to meet the medical care needs of the community and how changes in federal health care legislation and sequestration are impacting their work.
