Connection Between Depression and Inability to Fill Prescriptions in Rural FQHC Patients with Chronic Disease

Description
Examines rates of depression among 438 patients with hypertension or diabetes at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the rural South. Also explores whether inability to afford prescription medicines within the previous 12 months is a predictor of depression in these patients. Includes statistics with breakdowns by race or ethnicity, gender, education, employment status, income, chronic condition, and history of mental illness.
