About the event

The disparity in rural mortality rates compared to urban mortality,  known as the rural-urban mortality gap, is widening in the United  States, regardless of which rurality measurement schema is used.  By 2019, rural mortality was approximately 20% higher than urban  mortality. Rurality is a powerful determinant of health with effects on  par with those of education attainment and surpassing the impact  of race. In this webinar, Dr. Shawna Beese will share an overview  of her work using neighborhood approaches to promote health  among Washington State (WA) rural residents.
