On Fri., Aug. 26, 2022 the Rural & Underserved Health Research Center (RUHRC) hosted its second Symposium event to share new rural health research with in-person and virtual audiences. More than 50 people attended the event in-person or by Zoom, followed by a discussion with RUHRC advisory board members.

“We were glad to have the opportunity to bring together our faculty and advisory board to share their knowledge with people interested in rural health issues,” said Tyrone Borders, PhD, director of the RUHRC.

The Symposium began with an introduction from College of Nursing Dean Janie Heath, followed by presentations from RUHRC faculty with opportunities for questions/comments from the audience. The final portion of the morning was a brief panel discussion with the RUHRC advisory board.

The RUHRC would like to thank Dean Heath for her attendance and remarks as well as its advisory board members Andrew Bazemore, MD, MPH; Veronica Cecil, JD; Mary Charlton, PhD; Gilbert Liu, MD; Alan Morgan, MPA; and Tim Putnam, DHA, MBA.
