  • Michelle Mitchell

Dr. Michelle Mitchell, M.D., has been practicing family medicine in Hawaii for more than 11 years and now she is sounding the alarm about the severe physician shortage in Hawaii.

At 7 p.m. on Jan. 30, at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, room UCB 100, Mitchell will discuss its causes, such as insurance rules and practices — highlighting the issues surrounding insurance reimbursements and the administrative burdens that lead to physician burnout.
