Challenges to health equity in rural areas include an aging population, fewer health care providers, greater poverty rates and lower insurance coverage. National thought leaders in rural health recently shared four recommendations to shift us from describing the problem of rural health disparities to designing effective solutions: “(1) create mechanisms to allow the research community time to build sustainable rural community-based participatory relationships; (2) support innovative research designs and approaches relevant to rural settings; (3) sustain effective interventions relevant to unique challenges in rural areas; and (4) recognize and identify the diversity within and across rural populations and adapt culturally and language-appropriate approaches.” (Cacari Stone, L., Roary, M. C., Diana, A., & Grady, P. A., 2021. State health disparities research in Rural America: Gaps and future directions in an era of COVID-19. The Journal of Rural Health.

In this session, researchers will:

  1. Describe community-engaged research projects with organizations supporting rural health
  2. Reflect on the recommendations for rural health research put forward in Cacari Stone al (2021)
  3. Discuss lessons learned and practical tips for rural health research in Wisconsin
