Matt Bruflodt, Information Specialist
Matt Bruflodt has been an Information Specialist for the Rural Health Information Hub since 2017.
In this role, Matt writes and maintains topic and state guides, adds new resources to the RHIhub website, and
provides customized assistance through our Resource and Referral Service. In Matt's view, this means being a
jack of all trades, because although he does have areas of expertise, he needs to be able to answer questions
on a myriad of rural health topics. He feels that a lot of what he does is problem-solving; figuring out what is
needed, if it exists, and where it fits. Matt's focuses are on behavioral health and oral health, agricultural
health and safety, frontier areas, migrant health, border health, veterans' health and tribal health, and
community vitality. He also acts as a liaison to states primarily in the Western United States.
Although Matt did not originally set out to work in rural health, he came well-prepared. He's lived in rural areas for most of his life, and especially appreciates the close proximity to nature and the quiet that is so elusive in urban areas. Additionally, several members of his family work in healthcare, providing him with exposure to and investment in health issues.
