The Rural Healthy People 2010 project identified and prioritized the key rural health issues and summarized promising models for practice in those priority areas. The purpose of this expansion project is to build on the findings of Rural Healthy People 2010 by concentrating on the 13th and 14th highest ranking rural priority areas (Immunization and Infectious Diseases; Injury and Violence Prevention) and their associated models for practice. At the same time, additional models for practice for the focus areas and objectives covered in the prior years have been added to the Rural Healthy People 2010 webpage.
