Rural Health

Approximately 60 million Americans, or one-fifth of the U.S. population, reside in rural areas. Compared to their urban counterparts, persons residing in rural areas have lower incomes and specific health disparities. In addition, rural areas experience primary care physician shortages and a high prevalence of metabolic syndromes such as Diabetes, tobacco and alcohol abuse, higher rates of obesity, and physical inactivity, which all result in decreased life expectancy.
