Join us as we celebrate 20 years of rural health policy research by the Maine Rural Health Research Center, one of only seven national research and policy analysis centers funded by the Office of Rural Health Policy, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP with Donna Reed.

Established in 1992, the Maine Rural Health Research Center draws on the multidisciplinary faculty, research resources, and capacity of the Cutler Institute for Health and Social Policy within the USM Muskie School of Public Service. The center's mission is to inform health care policymaking and the delivery of rural health services through high quality research, policy analysis, and technical assistance on rural health issues of regional and national significance. Its portfolio of rural health services research addresses critical, policy-relevant issues in health care access and financing, rural hospitals, primary care, and behavioral health.
