RURAL: Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal Cohort Study

Grants and Contracts Details


Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal Study (RURAL) The Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal Study (RURAL) is a prospective cohort study that aims to address critical gaps in our knowledge of heart and lung disorders in rural counties in the southeastern US. Focusing on 10 rural counties in Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi, our research team will examine about 4,000 residents to study different aspects of their heart, lung and general health. In Kentucky, we will be recruiting participants from Boyle, Breathitt, Garrard, and Perry counties. With our mobile research vehicle, we will travel to rural counties to conduct the research. Participants will receive results from their research examination. Average results for the counties will be shared also with community organizations
