Rural Matters Podcast

Tom Morris, Associate Administrator for the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, spoke with John White in the December 12 edition of the Rural Matters podcast.

The focus of the conversation was the sobering fact borne out by research that rural Americans are dying at an earlier age and at a higher rate than urban Americans. Some of the conditions that are leading to the higher rate of death in rural areas, including certain chronic diseases and opioid addiction, could be prevented through timely intervention, education, and better access to health care.

Rural Matters is a biweekly, 30-minute podcast about rural education, business, and health. Guests include rural education decision-makers, rural business owners and entrepreneurs and rural health care representatives.
