Join us for a webinar on Improving Health Equity Through Rural Economic Development
Register today for our next webinar on August 13 to learn about the connection between economic development and health equity featuring Klamath County, Oregon, a 2018 winner of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize.
After decades of economic stagnation, in 2012 the Healthy Klamath Coalition came together to work toward creating a healthier community. You'll hear from our guests from the Klamath County Public Health Department, who will share their roles in Klamath County's economic development activities and describe how these efforts have impacted health factors like food insecurity, access to exercise opportunites and unemployment.
In addition, we'll share Klamath County's approach to resident engagement and multi-sector collaboration, which will provide useful insights for rural and urban communities alike!
