The RURAL (Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal) Cohort Study aims to address critical gaps in our knowledge of heart and lung disorders in rural counties in the southeastern US. With our mobile research vehicle, we will travel to rural counties to research people’s health. We hope that our research findings will promote the health of rural communities.
Nearly 46 million Americans live in rural communities. Some people who live in rural areas may have health concerns. We aim to understand these health concerns through extensive research.
