Advancing Rural & Community Health Equity

This new summer program brings together students, professionals and community members interested in exploring opportunities and challenges for advancing rural and community health equity in the context of poverty.

This unique offering combines two courses, Families and Poverty (HDFS 447 / 547) and Community Engagement and Social Change (HDFS 408 / 508), to examine the multiple causes and consequences of family poverty and allow you to develop a customized plan within a community. Both courses are required. You can choose either credit or non-credit (professional development) options. 

Through course activities, guest speakers, a field trip and a community-based project, you will learn and apply community engagement strategies to affect positive change. Participants may include OSU students, OSU Extension field faculty and community partners.
