Community is the Foundation of our Research
Community input throughout the RURAL Cohort Study is at the heart of our research. We will include the community and participants at every stage of the research. By working with local leaders and community organizations, we will ensure your health concerns are recognized.
We’re recruiting in Oktibbeha, Mississippi!
The Mobile Examination Unit will next visit Panola county, Mississippi in Fall 2023. In future years, we will visit Louisiana and Kentucky. Check back in the coming months for more information.
Future Advisory Boards
Our goal is to partner with communities for research. This requires the creation of advisory boards that are tailored to the needs of the communities. Our team will work with both community members and local organizations to create these advisory boards. These boards are participant focused and inspired by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
The Community Advisory Boards will include community engagement coordinators, community members, participants, and some members of our team. They will meet regularly to ensure that we understand the concerns of rural community members. This will allow our research to have the greatest benefit to participants and their communities.
What is an advisory board?
A group of individuals who have been selected to give advice to the RURAL Cohort Study team.
