Primary care is where the rubber meets the road when it comes to health-system changes. Whether you want to reduce emergency room use, better manage chronic illness or boost immunization rates, primary care providers must be the driving force.  And yet what the wonks call “the primary care infrastructure” has never been more fragile. For reporters, this means a rich trove of stories on issues affecting the lives of everyone.

Providence Journal medical writer Felice J. Freyer lays out the key issues and a rich supply of story ideas and resources for local health reporters to pursue.
