A podcast features Dr. Lauri Andress, assistant professor in the WVU Department of Health Policy, Management and Leadership, and Cindy Fitch, WVU Extension specialist.
The two discuss their recent paper, “Rural Health Inequities and the Role of Cooperative Extension,” which was published in the Journal of Extension. The podcast, "Working Differently in Extension," is produced by the North Dakota State University Extension Service.
"So much of their article spoke to things I believe about complex issues, using networks to address those issues and Extension’s potential role in those networks," host and web technology specialist Bob Bertsch said. "Andress and Fitch believe Cooperative Extension is uniquely positioned to address rural health inequities on a number of fronts. I agree, but I also think Extension alone cannot solve this problem."
