Jenn Lukens, Web Writer
Jenn Lukens has been a web writer for the Rural Health Information Hub since 2015.
Jenn writes original content for the website, including RHIhub's Models and
Innovations and Rural Monitor
involving health networks; maternal, infant, and child health; healthy lifestyles including exercise and
nutrition; community health workers; and disease prevention and reversal. Jenn sees her role as
gap between theory and practice: there are great ideas out there, but it can be difficult to know how to
implement them. Highlighting successful programs in rural areas or delving into important rural issues means
rural organizations with scarce resources don't have to re-invent the wheel.
Jenn received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and in Biblical and Theological Studies from the University of Northwestern. After college, Jenn worked in public relations for a variety of non-profits, including one in rural North Carolina. She also worked as an Insurance Clerk in a rural North Dakota hospital, which provided her with invaluable knowledge of the healthcare field and how facilities run from a business perspective. During her time there, Jenn also created their newsletter, acting as writer, editor, and publisher. She interviewed hospital and clinic patients and staff, which allowed her to experience the human side of healthcare and to connect more with her community.
