Localize the Remedy

Community efforts can ameliorate poor quality of care
By Elizabeth A. McGlynn
On the Cover:
Members of the “Pulmonica Puffers,” a group of pulmonary rehabilitation patients from a Christus Schumpert health facility in Shreveport, La., perform on harmonicas during their first concert on April 21. The music program not only is fun but also helps patients improve their airflow and strengthens their diaphragms. Puffers shown are Jimmye Sue Walsworth, Meta Rust, Marjorie Brown, and Bert Earley.
