A Path Forward: Thriving in Rural Health Care after COVID-19
Presented by:

Tying community engagement to diversity and health equity, Benjamin explores true stories of the amazing resiliency of rural communities amidst the formidable challenges of a pandemic. He will share the lessons learned through many interviews with rural health leaders and patients through the successful development of a post COVID-19 nationally-released toolkit and playbook called Re-Imagining Leadership: A Pathway for Rural Health to Thrive in a COVID-19 World that was created in partnership with the Farley Health Policy Center. His empathetic and informative message will inspire and empower health leaders across the United States to align their efforts into inclusive coordinated strategies, leading to healthier care staff, patients, and communities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine health disparities between rural and urban Americans;
  • Explore ways to address nine common challenge areas in rural health care delivery systems in the United States;
