NOSORH and the Collaborative for Rural Primary care, Research, Education and Practice (Rural PREP) are looking for researchers to participate in research Design and Dissemination Studios (DDS) to be held in conjunction with two SORH Regional Meetings. Researchers who address topics on rural primary care health profession education OR students in a rural primary care education or training program are sought. Research projects that are proposed, in progress or published are of interest for the DDS. Travel stipends are available. Support for researchers to prepare to participate in this innovative activity to inform research is provided.

The DDS is an innovative strategy of the Rural PREP project led by Dr. Randall Longenecker, Associate Director, Communities of Practice Lead, Ohio University, and Dr. Davis Patterson, Project Director, University of Washington School of Medicine. Rural PREP is a national project whose mission is to improve and sustain rural health through community engagement and research in primary care health professions education. The DDS are events in which communities participate in the design of research and then help interpret and disseminate the results. The process makes research more community-centered, culturally relevant, and accessible to those who will most benefit from the findings. To learn more about DSS click here.

Stakeholders from across the nation are invited to participate in the sessions held in conjunction with SORH regional meetings on June 12th from 9:00-11:30am in Charlottesville, VA; and on June 25th from 2:00-4:30pm in Little Rock, AR.  Travel support is available for stakeholders in the amount of $500.
