Strengthening Social Connectedness in Rural Communities

July 27, 2022 | 12 pm MT | A Strengthening Social Connectedness Webinar

Strengthening Social Connectedness in rural communities

Rural communities face unique challenges in the coming decades: sluggish internet access, increasingly limited social resources and access to healthcare specialists, to name a few. As a result of these and many other factors, rural communities face high levels of isolation, loneliness, and mental health struggles – which is expected to rise as these issues become further exacerbated.

In our next webinar we are gathering leaders in research and practice to discuss this important issue from numerous perspectives. Our goal is to bring together the best in the field to share best practices and facilitate a discussion that provides a better understanding of both the problem and potential solutions.

Through this webinar and our series on social connectedness, we hope to build a community of leaders across industries and sectors committed to strengthening social ties.
