Richard Davidson M.D., M.P.H., recalls his interactions with a local healer in the community of Stoney Fork, Tennessee, while serving as the first physician for Mountain People’s Health Councils (MPHC), a consortium of health clinics originally formed by the communities of Norma (Scott County), Petros (Morgan County), and Stoney Fork (Campbell County). Each clinic grew out of health fairs conducted by the Vanderbilt Student Health Coalition in 1972.

Recorded on May 17, 2017, as a part of a panel discussion at a reunion of the Student Health Coalition at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
