APPLI Launches Public Health Page

The Appalachian Learning Initiative has launched the Public Health page on its website.
The page provides an overview of public health issues in Appalachia, including public health statistics, the barriers that Appalachians face to accessing healthcare services, and the Social Determinants of Health that underlie many of the health conditions experienced by people living in Appalachia.
As APPLI's work in the Public Health research and advocacy space grows over time, the page will expand to include information about how our community can get involved in improving both access to healthcare services and health outcomes across Appalachia's 423 counties and 8 independent Virginia cities.
While there is still work to be done, the new Public Health page serves as a launchpad for a forthcoming initiative that will be announced on Giving Tuesday (November 29th, 2022).
