The Mud Creek Clinic was started in 1973 by a community in Floyd County, Kentucky who believed health care is a right, not a privilege. The film of the same name describes the formation of the clinic, explores the feelings among patients and community members that the clinic belongs to them, and draws a portrait of clinic director Eula Hall, who has long been involved in community struggles in Eastern Kentucky. From the fight for a school lunch program in Floyd County to UMWA picket lines in Harlan County, Hall has become a nationally known figure for work for justice and equity for the people of Eastern Kentucky. Mud Creek Clinic depicts the clear and passionate victory of a community in organizing and maintaining health care for all its people.
