NOSORH is ready to host our first set of Design and Dissemination Studios (DDS) at the Region A and D Meetings. “We’re excited to offer State Offices of Rural Health and other stakeholders an opportunity to discuss and influence health workforce research at the DDS,” said Matt Strycker NOSORH Program Manager. If you will be attending the DDS event at the Region A meeting in Charlottesville, VA, you will be joined by Randy Longenecker, M.D., Executive Director, The Rural Training Track Collaborative; Davis Patterson, Ph.D., Deputy Director, WWAMI Rural Health Research Center; and Paulius Mui, a researcher at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. Longenecker and Patterson will seek participant insight on “Competence Revisited in a Rural Context” and Mui will discuss research on “How Do Rural Communities Deal With Losing Their Physician?” For a full agenda, click here.
Region D’s agenda is also set and will feature Longenecker and Patterson discussing research on “Medical School Commitment.” In addition, researchers Enrique Camacho Jr., D.O., and Suporn Sukpraprut-Braaten, MSc, Ph.D., will share information on the “Efficacy of OMT on Reducing Opioid Use in Patients with Chronic Back Pain.” For a full agenda, click here.
