Introduction to Rural Health Research Guide

This research guide contains information and links related to rural health. It was initiated at the start of the Rural Health Scholars program-Roux Institute in Maine. Each tab will provide articles, resources and information on that topic. This is not comprehensive coverage of every article available or every data source. New information is constantly produced and research focus will determine what publications are relevant. Suggestions for selecting resources and tips for searching are in the Literature page of this guide..

*This guide is continually evolving with new content being added as new information is discovered. If you have recommendations for this guide, please reach out to me.
