In order to better serve as a leader, partner, catalyst and voice with local health departments, as of autumn 2017, NACCHO established a Rural Health Section. The Rural Health Section is comprised of NACCHO members and partners working together across multidisciplinary and programmatic expertise to articulate a high level strategy for advocacy, goal attainment, structural system requirements, resources and approaches to improve rural health. Each quarter, the Section will host a webinar to discuss specific topics of interest.
This quarter, the guest speaker is 2017-2018 NACCHO Health & Disability Fellow, Whitney Thurman, MSN, RN who will present on her article “Four Strategies for Rural Health Departments to Engage People with Disabilities”, which is also the topic of her dissertation.
