CO-OPS AS HEALTH CARE CONDUITS DISCUSSED BY MTSU PROFESSOR
“MTSU On the Record” Examines Economic Model Used by Farmers
(MURFREESBORO) – Dr. Justin Gardner, assistant professor of agribusiness and agriscience, will talk about the application of the co-op model to health care at 7 a.m. this Sunday, Sept. 27, on “MTSU On the Record” with host Gina Logue on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
A co-op (short for “cooperative”) is a not-for-profit, member-owned group that bands together to achieve common goals and regulates itself through a representative panel. Farmers are familiar with the co-op as a means of providing agricultural supplies at lower prices. U.S. Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) has proposed health care co-ops as alternatives to a public option.
