The CDC states that “About 46 million Americans live in rural areas, which face distinctive challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In this episode of Complexity Simplified, Summit Consulting Director Kate Machado discusses how rural populations are uniquely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with Hilda Heady, MSW. Ms. Heady spent 43 years as a rural health leader, direct service professional, educator and strong advocate for rural families, women, Veterans and communities. She served as a charter member of the VA Secretary’s Rural Health Advisory Committee from 2008 to 2013 and as the 2005 President of the National Rural Health Association. For 18 years, she was the associate vice president for rural health at the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center at WVU.
