Rural America faces many challenges: struggling economies, rising suicide rates and the growing opioid epidemic. Land-grant institutions are uniquely positioned to impact community wellness in rural America at the local level. The University of Georgia invites you to join representatives from across rural America to have a conversation, explore best practices, and learn from industry and academic experts. Please save the date and join us in Atlanta at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Airport.
