“16 Minutes” Visits Community Health Centers in New Hampshire

By Amy Simmons Farber

On “16 Minutes” a hard hitting look at health center unfolds in New Hampshire.  The actual Andy Rooney (instead there “Randy Mooney”)  fails to materialize with his usual grousing in this rendition of the long-standing investigative news program, but viewers gain something even better — an inside look at the great work happening every day at New Hampshire’s Community Health Centers.  The video tours  Community Health Centers, and presents unscripted patient and provider interviews, thrown in with good reporting that demonstrates in a creative, credible, and entertaining manner how an interdependent system supports the delivery of health care in underserved areas of the Granite State.

“It was very well received and a lot of fun to make,” said Tess Stack Kuenning (pictured), Executive Director of the Bi-State Primary Care Association, which conceived and produced the video that premiered at their legislative and business breakfast earlier this month.

The video was shot over six weeks, with the “reporting” at a local community television station studio.  It’s already getting rave reviews from state legislators and local foundations.
