MPH program keeps research active

[cincopa AYBAL0qeAYCO]

Research completed by A.T. Still University’s School of Health Management (ATSU-SHM) MPH program was presented at the conference, titled “New Horizons in Rural Health Care: Vision or Mirage,” held Dec. 7-8,  in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Over the last two years the full-time MPH program faculty has addressed the challenge of developing a research component for an online academic program by identifying individual research areas that fit into a common theme.

The first theme selected was “Health of the United States/Mexico.” Eight papers arranged in two panels were developed and submitted to the National Rural Health Association for its 17th Annual Rural Multiracial and Multicultural Health Conference.
