“When you know how to recognize the signs and symptoms, you can help.”

Rural communities face unique challenges that must be taken into consideration regarding preventative healthcare.  Many people living in these communities may not have access to medical care, and even if they do, they may not know what to look for when it comes to signs and symptoms of illnesses.  Lack of knowledge can lead to serious health problems being left untreated, which can have devastating consequences for the individuals and their families.

In order to improve the quality of preventative healthcare and reduce the impact of chronic diseases on rural communities, it is important to understand the signs and symptoms of these conditions.
