农村社区对全国经济,文化,历史和未来成为一体化。五分之一的美国人住在美国农村。虽然许多农村地区都是充满活力和蓬勃发展,但其他人正在努力,经济压力,生计衰退,健康成果差 - 特别是在低收入地区和彩色社区。The Institute’s Community Strategies Group, with partners at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, launched “Thrive Rural: Connecting Rural Development, Health and Opportunity” to focus on creating sustainable rural communities where people can realize their full potential and live healthy lives. With an emphasis on race, class, and place, Thrive Rural will bridge health with economic development by connecting leaders across disciplines and regions to create a network that advances rural health and prosperity. Thrive Rural will also help craft a truer, more balanced account of rural America, including its diversity and contributions to the nation.
