Our Expertise

The Center for Rural Health is home to many programs engaged in research. The Rural Health Reform Policy Research Center is one of seven federally-funded rural health research centers. CRH is also home to the National Resource Center on Native American Aging, which works with tribes nationwide on community-based participatory research. CRH faculty conduct research on behalf of foundations and North Dakota state government agencies, as well as through support from a variety of federal agencies. The Center's researchers have a wide network of contacts involved in rural health research across the country, as well as connections with key organizations and agencies within North Dakota. Mapping and working with large databases, including Medicare data, are particular skills of the Center's research team. The Center also has faculty with extensive experience in program planning and evaluation for local, county, state, federal, and international programs. Our evaluation experts can help plan and conduct evaluations for a wide variety of programs.
