A National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Site is an approved health care facility that provides healthcare to populations residing in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs). Today’s map of the day is an interactive map which shows the total number of loan repayment sites. The top layer is a heat density map showing the loan repayment site concentration. The red areas represent the more concentrated areas of the facility sites. We can see that the more concentrated areas are in the more populated areas and also along the Mississippi and Appalachian areas which are known as being undeserved areas. The bottom layer represents per capita income by county level.
