'Podnosis': What private equity means for rural healthcare, and how Margaret-Mary Wilson's career journey impacts patient care

Rural healthcare is in dire need of investment and resources. Enter private equity. But experts say PE deals need to be scrutinized. Mary Bugbee, a research and campaign coordinator at a nonprofit financial watchdog organization called Private Equity Stakeholder Project, talks with Anastassia Gliadkovskaya about the pros and cons of PE in rural settings.  

Also on the podcast, Senior Editor Paige Minemyer caught up with Margaret-Mary Wilson, M.D., to discuss her career journey and how it impacts her perspective on caring for patients. Wilson entered the fold at UnitedHealth Group nearly 15 years ago after becoming a physician in her native Nigeria and treating patients in the U.K. and the U.S.
