Organizations hopeful about recruiting effort

Laramie, Wy –
State health care organizations are hoping that the latest effort to recruit doctors will be successful. Wyoming Health Resources Network Director Pennie Hunt is hopeful that a grant program that will provide up to 80 thousand dollars to local health organizations will bring more doctors to the state. Hunt says other states have had a similar program for years.
It's the first time the legislature has agreed to help recruit doctors. The deadline for applications is September 15th. A decision on who gets the grant money by September 30th.
