The Rural Health Research Institute (RHRI) at Georgia Southern University, is an interdisciplinary hub of research focusing on rural health issues spanning the health spectrum (physical health, mental health, and prevention). The Rural Health Research Institute connects faculty from diverse backgrounds, representing dozens of fields and research areas. The RHRI’s federal grant portfolio has included numerous projects funded by NIH, HRSA, and CNCS that focus on diverse aspects of health promotion and disparities elimination in rural areas.  Please explore our site to learn more about our initiatives. Please contact us with any questions or opportunities for collaborative research or outreach – we are always looking to partner with new individuals and organizations to improve health among the 20% of U.S. residents in rural areas.
