Resources from the Master of Public Health online program from Baylor University
With more than 60 million people living outside cities in the United States, they face higher rates of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and suicide, as well as, poor access to prenatal health. The MPH@Baylor online program recently published two resources to provide insight on the growing health disparities between rural and urban communities and how to mitigate gaps to create better outcomes for them.
The two resources are: “Rural, Remote, and Resilient: How to Build Better Outcomes Outside of America’s Cities” (https://onlinegrad.baylor.edu/resources/public-health-strategies-rural-communities/) and “Building Support for Pregnant Women in Rural and Urban Communities” (https://onlinegrad.baylor.edu/resources/pregnant-women-prenatal-care-rural/).
The resources provide timely and engaging information.
