The 2021 NIH Rural Health Day Seminar: Structural-Level Determinants of Rural Health Disparities will take place on Thursday, November 18 from 10-4:30pm CST via NIH VideoCast.
The seminar will provide an opportunity to engage and explore important issues of rural health by focusing on the following areas:
- Sociocultural and economic determinants of health in rural populations
- Physical environmental determinants of health in rural populations
- Evaluation, measurements, and policy implications on rural health
The National Institutes of Health Rural Health Special Interest Group (RHSIG) works to raise awareness of rural health issues and improve biomedical, behavioral/social science, intervention and implementation research aimed at improving disease prevention, self-management, and care delivery across the care continuum. The goal of RHSIG is to advance understanding of rural health disparities and stimulate research to identify multi-level, evidence-based solutions to improve rural health outcomes. The group connects clinical, community-based interventionists and translational scientists from diverse disciplines across the NIH to research communities and decision makers, and provides opportunities for professional development, networking, and community engagement.
Registration is free, required, and open to the public.
