Students interested in learning more about issues of population health in rural spaces are encouraged to join SARH. Whether this is a topic near to your heart, or you are new to all things rural, we welcome your participation! We know that place shapes so much about health outcomes, and rural places, too long overlooked, are becoming an increasing focus of media and political discourse.
This group offers UNMC students from all campuses interested in rural health issues an organized way to network with each other and faculty and staff doing rural health work, to seek professional opportunities to advance rural health research and practice, as well as to broaden their understanding of pressing equity and health challenges. Due to COVID-19, our meetings and activities will be limited during the 2020-2021 to primarily virtual settings, but we still aim to have rich discussions and learnings as we connect over this shared interest from across our different places.
SARH meetings are typically held the 4th Tuesday of each month from 12 Noon - 12:50 p.m. To gain additional information, see upcoming events, or access meetings materials from previously held meetings, find the Student Association for Rural Health on UNMC Engage.
Next Meeting: Tuesday, December 15, 2020, via Zoom.
