On November 16, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. EST Rural Health Information Hub is hosting a webinar that will highlight recent and ongoing work by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in describing rural-urban differences in all-cause mortality, suicide, alcohol-related deaths, motor vehicle traffic deaths, and drug overdose deaths. As the nation’s principal health statistics agency, NCHS regularly provides data and analysis of health outcomes that differentially affect Americans. A major focus area for the agency has been understanding and describing health outcomes across the rural-urban continuum. Additionally, this webinar will feature insights from a program working to reduce mortality related to substance use in rural Pennsylvania. Learn more and register here.
