Rural Health Equity

Promoting rural health through social enterprise and technology synergies.

This research cluster will bring together multidisciplinary researchers in computer science, management, medicine, nursing, social work to conduct high quality, collaborative, and community-based rural health research to promote the health of children and youth, older adults with chronic disease, and Indigenous people living in rural communities.

The team will work directly with rural communities in B.C. to harness the power of social enterprises to enhance the uptake of digital health technologies, reduce disparities and promote inclusive, equitable care for disadvantaged populations.
