Health Disparities among Rural and Appalachian Reproductive-Age
Women in  Ohio

Natalie DiPietro Mager, PharmD, PhD, Michelle Menegay, PhD, MPH and
Reena Oza-Frank, PhD, MS-MPH, RD

 Oftentimes, health measures are reported at national or state levels; however, disaggregating and reporting these measures for rural or underserved areas may be necessary to better understand regional needs. In this webinar, three epidemiologists will share results of their research showing health disparities for reproductive-age women in Ohio who live in rural and/or Appalachian areas. Details regarding a study of key informants to improve women's health will also be shared for those wanting to collect similar data in their local areas. Geographic differences in health and available resources emphasize the need for regional customization of prevention messages to improve health.

Regional Stakeholder Meetings 

Stakeholder meetings are held across the state; they are an essential piece of our advocacy, education, and relationship efforts.

This June our virtual meetings will bring people together to have a conversation about improved access to care. During a 1.5-hour interactive meeting, participants will rank the feasibility and impact of evidence-based solutions to address access to care. From these meetings, ORHA will identify top priorities for the state to implement to support the Ohio Rural Health Improvement Plan.

Please watch for registration information.
