Rural and Hispanic Health Research Consultation


Conducting research in rural settings offers excellent opportunities for investigators, but often comes with a unique set of challenges. This is especially true for areas with predominantly Hispanic populations. Understanding and developing connections in rural and Hispanic communities is vital, whether you are trying to understand the unique health care challenges that exist in these settings or are working to ensure that people living there are represented in your study.

What resources and materials are available to help with rural and Hispanic health?

The ACTRI Community Resources team has experts in rural and Hispanic health research who can provide assistance that will enhance the quality of your research proposal. Ideally, consultation should occur when a proposal is being drafted; however, assistance can be provided at any stage during the research project.

Examples of possible consultation requests include:

  • Training in rural health research
  • Project specific consultation
  • Facilitated introductions to community agencies
