Rural Health Systems

Time & Location

12:00 - 12:45 PM ET

About one in five Americans (~60 million) live in rural areas, and research shows that these populations are more likely to experience poor health outcomes and socioeconomic disadvantages than their urban counterparts. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, those issues have only heightened, making it all the more challenging for rural health care entities to care for rural residents. In this webinar, panelists discussed the unique challenges that face rural health systems and the strategies they are employing during the emergency response. They also highlighted current or future legislative and administrative policy solutions.

This webinar is a project of the Alliance for Health Policy and NIHCM Foundation, in collaboration with The Commonwealth Fund.
