CoE Office Hour: Rural Health Challenges During COVID-19

Rural America has suffered from a severe shortage in behavioral health providers for decades. But, the Covid 19 pandemic has highlighted this inequity more than ever. Rural providers are doing all that they can to reach those most in need in their communities. However, the health disparities and social determinants of health experienced by the 20% of Americans who live in rural areas have been amplified dangerously further.

Please join us for our Office Hour session on Thursday, March 11th, from 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET to share your experiences and challenges with us in an open discussion with other rural health providers and experts.  In this session, our panelists will share strategies they’ve used to provide culturally competent and equitable services in under-resourced areas through tele-health and mobile health innovations. We also hope to learn more about your community’s needs and opportunities, so please join us to have your voice heard!
