Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer traveled the 9th district on March 12, making a stop at ATSU’s Gutensohn Clinic in Kirksville, Mo. During his visit to the Kirksville Family Medicine (KFM) Resident Clinic, Luetkemeyer met with pre-med students from Truman State University and students, senior residents, and physicians at ATSU to discuss the direction of healthcare in Missouri and the nation.
KFM Director Robert Schneider, D.O., hosted the event and led the Congressman on a tour through the clinic before he sat down with the group for a question and answer session.
“I wanted to be sure that the residents are politically aware of policies that may affect their delivery of care in this state,” Dr. Schneider said.
The group discussed topics on healthcare costs, access, and the importance of healthcare education in Missouri.
