HRSA, CDC, NNPHI and Georgia Health Policy Center
HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, CDC’s Office of the Associate Director for Policy, the National Network of Public Health Institutes, and the Georgia Health Policy Center at Georgia State University are convening an invite-only Rural Health Disparities Workshop: “What Works for Rural? From Research to Reality.”
This workshop is a tremendous opportunity to learn from each other about disparities in the five leading causes of death for rural communities – what works and what may not in terms of addressing them, and what’s needed in terms of research and practical application. The day-and-a-half workshop is also intended to provide participants more information about existing resources and tools that can be helpful when adapting interventions to the needs of rural communities.
