Event Details

Rural communities face significant health disparities relative to their urban-dwelling counterparts. Efforts to enhance health equity and transform the food system converge in our rural communities, where health disparities exist in tandem with rich agricultural histories and traditions of communal self-reliance. It’s imperative that researchers and practitioners become well-versed in best practices for not only engaging, but empowering, this subset of the population for the sake of both nutrition and food system equity. This session will include brief presentations from each speaker on lessons learned from research studies employing community engagement best practices, followed by panel Q&A and group discussion.
