Attending the workshop were Surgeon General Jerome Adams (l), NINR director emeritus Dr. Patricia Grady (c) and Radm. Sylvia Trent-Adams, deputy surgeon general.

The National Institute of Nursing Research, together with partners from across NIH, recently held a workshop on the “State of Rural Health Disparities: Research Gaps and Recommendations.”  

It examined the state of research on rural health disparities and provided an opportunity for scientists and health advocates to come together to catalyze and shape the future research agenda for this critical area. 

The workshop targeted health promotion and disease prevention, approaches to managing chronic conditions and environmental influences, including technology.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams and NINR director emeritus Dr. Patricia Grady opened the workshop and set the tone for discussion by national experts.
