medical deserts

”. Most recent, the Mayenne deputy Yannick Favennec (UDI), who without being a specialist in health subjects - he is a member of the Defense Commission - tabled a bill (PPL) co-signed with Thierry Benoit, UDI deputy of Ille and Vilaine, requiring young doctors to spend three years in poorly endowed areas.
