RWHI Newsletter

yellow flowersHealth Matters for Rural Women

This newsletter is a source for news and information about the health of rural women in Arizona. Health is more than the absence of disease and women’s health is more than reproductive health. Many factors contribute to individual health and well-being. Through this newsletter, AzRWHI presents relevant and useful topics, creates conversations, and provides a space for rural communities, health professionals, and women living in rural communties to explore health.

Do you have an idea for a future topic to be covered in the newsletter? Can you interview someone who is making a difference in the lives of women living in rural areas? Do you have an upcoming event or new resource? To provide a contribution, please email Jennifer Peters.
