Educating and Informing

The Center for Rural Health (CRH) is committed to enhancing the understanding of rural health issues in our state, region, and the nation. We work with a wide range of rural stakeholders to:

  • Raise awareness about the challenges facing rural communities
  • Help people working on rural issues share their experiences and learn from one another
  • Support informed decision making

What We Can Do for You

In the area of educating and informing, we offer:

Our Expertise

Our staff and faculty present and publish on a wide range of rural health topics at the national, regional, tribal, state, and community levels. We also serve on a variety of national and regional boards, committees, and task forces, all with the aim of helping to inform people, organizations, and policy discussions about rural issues.

We provide information to the North Dakota Legislature, the Governor's office, and our state's federal delegation, as well as to legislative staff across the country.

CRH is the home of the RHIhub, the nation's rural health information center. RHIhub provides information, resources, models, opportunities, and more to millions of website visitors each year. CRH also hosts the Rural Health Research Gateway, which works with the federally-funded Rural Health Research Centers to communicate rural health research findings to a broad audience around the country.
