What is health equity and how has the health of our region’s rural populations been impacted by COVID-19? While there have been many challenges to our health systems, the pandemic has revealed strengths as well. Researchers from the Center for Global Health Equity at Dartmouth College have conducted a study to examine the impact of COVID-19 on rural communities and health systems. Hear from regional leaders and then discuss these issues with your community.
Health Research Live programs include 20 minutes of presentations from experts, 15 minutes of break out groups to discuss issues with your community, and 20 minutes of a larger group discussion. This program will be conducted via Zoom.
This program is produced and organized by Dartmouth Synergy, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Montshire Museum of Science, and Center for Global Health Equity at Dartmouth College.
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited so please RSVP by 4pm on June 1.
