Webinar: Who's ready for engagement with rural communities?

Rural populations are historically underrepresented in health research. Simply having more research take place in rural settings, however, is not enough to address this gap in knowledge. This KTConnects webinar will consider the idea that community members may wish to be partners, and not merely ‘stakeholders,’ in research. To do so, they will explore community-based participatory research approach as a means to achieve a deeper commitment to rural health research.
