Welcome to another season of the INTERCONNECTED conversation series hosted by the Center for Rural Policy & Development and the Citizens League.
Wherever you live, you have undoubtedly encountered the term “Urban/Rural Divide” that describes a divisive narrative in policy and politics based on geographic differences. In reality, we all want similar things – good healthcare and education, for example – but the solutions often look different based on where you live. How can we build understanding between these communities?
Join us on Thursday, September 29, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. for this FREE webinar as we have a candid conversation exploring shared challenges and opportunities facing Emergency Medical Services in rural and urban areas. We all want an ambulance to arrive promptly when we call 9-1-1, but funding and workforce issues are stretching systems thin. Learn more during this lively discussion.
