Brain Drain Hits Rural Areas Hardest

Another angle on the global brain drain: Doctors are leaving the Philippines to become nurses in the US and other countries. Health care services in rural parts of the Philippines have suffered the most. Hat tip to Andrew Quinn for the pointing out the story in the Washington Post.
