UNC Rural Health Research Seminar Series

We are excited to begin the 2020-2021 rural health research seminar series at UNC, funded by Carolina Seminars. This seminar series is designed to unite researchers from across the university whose work pertains to the study of rural health and health care. Excellent research is being conducted at the university in multiple disciplines, from health services research to nutrition, and from public policy to journalism. This seminar series is designed to raise awareness of the ongoing work and to encourage connection and collaboration among the individuals and teams currently studying rural health.

Who should attend? Any staff, students or faculty interested in rural health
