Rural Health Resources, a class from the NNLM will discuss the hallmarks of rural america, identify access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.  The course will explore resources from the National Library of Medicine, U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, Rural Health Information Hub and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  Each resource includes  consumer-level information and data sets that can be downloaded and used in visualizations.
