The Rural and Minority Health Research Center works to shed light on persistent inequities in health experienced by minority and poor populations in the rural US. Center goals include developing the methods and conducting the research necessary to understand health status, healthcare needs, health services use and health outcomes among vulnerable rural residents. The Center includes in its focus rural institutions, such as hospitals, community health centers, and rural health clinics, essential to the health of low-income and minority rural populations. The Center is based in the Department of Health Services Management and Policy, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina.
