Discussion Question: A half-century ago, the idea of physicians mixing clinical practice with “population-based” medicine was a novel idea.

Yet, both the community health center movement and the structure of the new specialty of “family medicine”, with its required panels of continuity patients seen in a family health center, are geared to the health and medical needs of specific communities.
