Rural healthcare initiative announced in Kansas

A new initiative in Kansas will help support health care in the state’s farming and rural communities.

Kansas State University recently announced a partnership with The University of Kansas Health System to work with the statewide K-State Research and Extension network to address healthcare challenges.

The initiative, called K-State 105, will focus on strategies to keep care local, caregiver support for patients with dementia, increasing access to digital and telehealth resources, programming focused on behavioral health needs, addressing OB-GYN/high-risk pregnancy provider shortages, and grant writing and facilitation resources.

The program will start with pilot projects in areas still being determined through collaboration with communities and with K-State Research and Extension offices.
