Forty-six million Americans live in rural areas, and often have difficulty obtaining needed healthcare services. Remote location, economic, cultural, educational, and social factors all combine to create a range of health challenges for these populations. For example, rural residents experience higher rates of chronic diseases and disability and death from injuries than residents of cities and suburbs. Featured here are a selection of PCORI-funded research and engagement projects that are addressing these challenges and health conditions.
