CHER Director Julie Baldwin serves as a board member on the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, Health and Medicine Division’s Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice. This active and engaged board will be hosting a Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity and the Elimination of Health Disparities at the upcoming Achieving Rural Health Equity and Well-being: Challenges and Opportunities workshop, June 13, 2017, in Prattville, Alabama. The workshop will be open to the public (registration required), and will be webcast. This promises to be an excellent exploration of many aspects of health equity with special focus on rural communities.
