Health on the Range: Rural Health Issues and Resources

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Presenter:       Kate Flewelling, Outreach Coordinator, NN/LM MAR

Dates:               Tuesday, September 30, 2014 / 10-11:30 am (ET)

Where:             Online

Details:             http://nnlm.gov/ntcc/classes/class_details.html?class_id=661

Summary:  Evidence shows that there are marked health disparities between those living in rural areas versus their urban counterparts. Not only do rural residents suffer from higher incidence of chronic illness, they also have limited access to primary care services and are more likely to be uninsured or under-insured. This session will describe hallmarks of rural America, identify other access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to use in service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.

 

Participants who attend the webinar and complete a short practice exercise will receive 2 MLA CE
