Rural Health in the United States

UW researchers contribute to rural health book

Several UW researchers are among the authors included in a newly released reference book, Rural Health in the United States, published by Oxford University Press. The editor is Thomas C. Ricketts, director of the North Carolina Rural Health Research Program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

The compendium covers hospital care, health professions, maternal and child health, rural managed care, and other topics.

Investigators from the WWAMI Rural Health Research Center and the WWAMI Center for Health Workforce Studies contributed two chapters.

Roger Rosenblatt and Gary Hart examined physician shortages and potential solutions to the persistent geographic maldistribution of health personnel. Denise Lishner, Eric H. Larson, Rosenblatt and Sarah Clark explored issues in providing perinatal and maternal health care in rural areas.

The book is an update of Health Care in Rural America, a reference tool for policy-makers, journalists, analysts and researchers published in 1999.
