Help set the rural public health agenda for the next decade

Rural health policy makers and researchers are looking for your input on the most important health issues facing rural residents.

Rural Healthy People 2020, is designed to identify what rural stakeholders see as the most significant preventable threats to the health of rural people, identify existing rural models for practice that address these threats, and to establish goals for reducing these threats. The starting point for this conversation is an online survey.

You're invited to take the survey and to forward this link to people in your own networks so they can participate, too. The more broadly we distribute the survey, the more likely we are to get results that match the health concerns of all rural Americans.

The survey link will be open through August 31, 2012.  Please take a few minutes today to go on-line, complete the survey AND share it with your networks.

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and does not require professional background in health issues.

  If you have any questions please contact  Dr. Jane N. Bolin, at or Dr. Gail Bellamy at
