New Eminence Cluster focuses on rural health equity

IHLCDP Associates Dr. Kathy Rush and Dr. Eric Li are leading a new Eminence Cluster at UBC’s Okanagan campus, entitled Rural Health Equity through Social Enterprise and Technologies Synergies (RHE-SETS).  The team will work with rural communities to find ways to use technology and local businesses to enable children/youth, older adults with chronic illnesses and Indigenous people have better opportunities to promote their health and access healthcare. This research team will leverage their relationship with the Regional Alliance for Rural Health and other groups committed to rural health to support this work.
