Please join our monthly Webinars for practical information ‘for rural, by rural’ that is hard to find anywhere else.

If research is not specifically rural, it defaults to urban because that is where the population is dense, and participants are easier to engage.

Are you an early career professional? Check out the Research and Policy Fellowship.

The New York State Association for Rural Health welcomes applicants for its Research and Policy (RaP) Fellowship program. This program introduces graduate students and early professionals to rural health issues and engages them in advocacy activities.

During their fellowship, RaP participants receive education about rural health equity, the legislative process in New York State, and effective advocacy practice. They have the opportunity to work with NYSARH mentors and to participate in NYSARH’s legislative action work during budget season.
