Module 3: Program Clearinghouse

This module provides information on organizations that have implemented health promotion and disease prevention programs in rural communities. Some of these organizations were funded by the HRSA Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, through the 330A Outreach Authority program, which focuses on expanding access to healthcare services in rural areas. Other examples of rural programs for health promotion and disease prevention are available in the Rural Models and Innovations section. Information on theories, strategies, and models for health promotion and disease prevention programs in rural communities are available in Module 2.
