Rural Health Education Resilience Lecture Series: April 2023


Community Health Engagement and Outreach invites you to join a bimonthly lecture series featuring renowned experts in the topic of resilience. Service providers, educators, and community members will engage in practical content related to stress, coping, and health equity.

As part of a Rural Health Safety Education (RHSE) grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), we strive to increase capacity for research- and evidence-based substance misuse prevention and resilience education in Missouri. We will host a total of 4 virtual webinars, one in February, April, June, and August, to help us obtain the goal of increasing the capacity of professionals and community-based organizations serving rural or marginalized communities. The webinars will provide educational programming for professional development in prevention and resilience as well as build awareness, increase skills, and disseminate resources.

Cost: Free
